About Us


Don’t let our name fool you.

The Area Agency on Aging offers help for more than the elderly. The truth is – everyone is aging. We simply make getting older, better.

Yes, we are experts in matching seniors and their caregivers with the proper services to make their lives easier. But we also provide expert guidance for adults of any age struggling with limitations. Just ask. Our services are totally free to residents of Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties.
