MISSION + VISION
To provide life-span resources that inspire, educate, and empower older adults, persons with disabilities and family caregivers.
AAA3 will evolve with the long-term care services and supports system by expanding our role as the Aging & Disability Resource Center, guided by the belief that all individuals have the right to person-centered care in the setting of their choice.
WHO WE SERVE
We are here to answer your questions and find programs and services in our area that are designed to make life easier for you and those you love. It is our privilege to assist seniors, persons with disabilities and their caregivers in our 7 county region.
On March 1, 2014, AAA3 expanded to cover Clark, Darke, Shelby, Logan, Miami, Preble and Champaign counties for the Ohio Home Care Waiver Program. At the end of 2019, AAA3 expanded the OHCW Program once again to include Butler, Clinton, Greene, Montgomery, and Warren Counties.
In 2020, AAA3 expanded yet again, but this time into northern counties to include Defiance, Henry, Fulton, Pauling, and Williams. these counties join the original 7 county region to cover the OhioKAN Kinship and Navigator Program.
For over 30 years, the Area Agency on Aging has been a leader in helping those who desire safe, dignified, independent living. Give us a call...we'd be happy to help.
