Our Senior Care Agency History
Since 1962, Aging True — operating as Cathedral Foundation of Jacksonville Inc. and subsequently in partnership with Urban Jacksonville Inc. — has designed and administered programs to help seniors in Northeast Florida maintain independence and age gracefully.
Cathedral Foundation of Jacksonville was established by a group of St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral parishioners who were concerned about the health and welfare of the elderly in Jacksonville. Their grassroots initiative expanded in 1974 to include Urban Jacksonville as a focused community service division dedicated to the needs of seniors.
Throughout the years, the organization has expanded to meet the needs of the community:
1991 – Designated as the Community Care for the Elderly lead agency in Duval County
2005 – Added Senior Connections, a dedicated nursing home diversion program developed by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA) and the Florida Agency of Health Care Administration (AHCA) to our offerings
2008 – Opened a licensed Home Health Care Agency
In 2011, Cathedral Foundation of Jacksonville Inc. and Urban Jacksonville Inc. formally changed its name to Aging True to better reflect the services we provide and the seniors we serve. The name “Aging True” speaks to our support and celebration of independent, graceful aging through our comprehensive programs and services — what aging should be.
2019 – Designated as the lead agency for Clay County senior services by Eldersource. This expansion added to the services Aging True provides with four senior centers and an adult day care for Clay County residents.
Today, Aging True is one of Northeast Florida’s largest non-profit provider of senior services and a leader in enabling home-based senior independence.
