Help comes in many forms. If you need assistance, contact us. We start by listening to your story. From there, we think of ways to make your day easier—customizing a plan that’s right for you and delivering services that give you the help you need to stay as independent as possible. The Area Agency on Aging, a private, non-profit organization, has been designated by the State of Ohio to be your contact agency for federal and state aging programs in Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby counties. But you don’t have to be a senior citizen to request help from us. No matter what your age, just get in touch and our registered nurses and social workers can help you get the assistance you need. Contact us at 937-223-HELP or 800-258-7277, or send an email to request a FREE, IN-HOME ASSESSMENT to determine eligibility for our programs or other community resources. You can also find more information about our programs below.
PASSPORT is for seniors age 60 and older who need the level of care provided in a nursing home, but want to stay in their home. It is a statewide program funded by Medicaid. Those who qualify for PASSPORT work with a nurse or social worker to develop a plan of care that customizes services to help them remain at home. Once enrolled, a case manager works with them to be sure needs are met with quality services, and that the plan of care is adjusted as needs change.Learn More

It typically offers assistance with the activities of daily living and ensures residents have access to staff 24 hours a day.
