Barrington Brew Fest is hosted by Barrington Area Council on Aging, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

At BACOA we strive to become the vital resource that adults, families, and caregivers seek out for information and support as a partner on this journey to #agingbetter. Growing older, or caring for an older family member, can pose complex challenges. Our team of professionals helps older adults and families better navigate these challenges. Learn more about BACOA. Subscribe to  BACOA’s Newsletter.

  • Memory Cafe, a socialization program for those struggling with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their caregivers
  • “A Day Out” Respite program, which provides engaged care for those with health issues while their caregiver takes needed time away
  • Meals with Wheels, a hot, food program for elderly unable to cook either because of poor health or low income
  • Support and education groups for those struggling with everything from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s
  • Supportive services for family caregivers
