Area Agency
on Aging

Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) was established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973 to respond to the needs of Americans 60 and over in every local community. By providing a range of options that allow older adults to choose the home and community-based services and living arrangements that suit them best, AAAs make it possible for older adults to “age in place” in their homes and communities.

Mission Statement

The Lumber River Area Agency on Aging takes a lead role in meeting the needs of older adults in the region through coordination and provision of comprehensive services, resource development, and effective advocacy.
