    Our Role

    In 1974, the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission was designated by the Department of Human Services to serve as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for the 12-county area in the Northeast Georgia Region. Over the years, the services have expanded to help aging and disabled Georgians have a more vibrant and fulfilling life physically, mentally and emotionally.

    Our role as the Area Agency on Aging is to: assess needs, advocate for resources, engage community support, coordinate program funding, and monitor and evaluate the work of service providers for the development of a comprehensive service delivery system that meets the short and long-term needs of persons sixty years of age or older, their caregivers or the disabled in the Northeast Georgia Area.  We accomplish this by working with federal, state and local officials, elderly and disabled constituents, service providers, caregivers, and the private sector to coordinate existing services and to develop new services. 

    The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) has an advisory council, comprised primarily of older persons, to review and comment on all programs affecting the elderly and disabled. 

    The AAA sub-contracts with local county governments, private organizations, senior centers, attorneys at law, and non-profit organizations to provide a variety of services in the northeast Georgia region.
