As The Area Agency on Aging for Region 1; we provide leadership in assessing the strengths and needs of older adults in the region; we facilitate strategic planning and implementation; fund and provide services to benefit older adults over 60 years of age and their caregivers, regardless of age.

We strive to provide a quality way of life that is dignified for the clients who utilize our services.

We provide and implement these services for those who are in the greatest economic and social need using a very dedicated staff and over 150 + volunteers!
