Area Agency on Aging

Our mission is to develop, provide, coordinate, and advocate for services that assist older individuals, at-risk adults, persons with disabilities, their families, and caregivers.
Our vision is to assist individuals in Living Longer, Living Safely, and Living Well.



The following programs and services receive federal and state funding through contracts between the Southern Georgia Regional Commission and the Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services or the Department of Community Health.
