The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. (AAA) is a nonprofit agency that serves Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Seneca, and Wyandot Counties. We have programs for all ages and all income levels; however, we specialize in services and programs for older adults and anyone with disabilities.
For nearly 45 years, AAA has served North Central Ohio with the same goal in mind: to help older adults and individuals with disabilities live safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible. We manage programs that provide in-home help and can connect you and your loved ones to a variety of community-based services including transportation, nutrition programs, and safety monitoring. We also offer free workshops to those with diabetes and other chronic conditions and educational resources, respite, trainings, and support for caregivers and grandparents raising grandchildren.
Additionally, AAA funds and develops programs for the people we serve and we advocate for older adults at the local, state, and national levels. We also partner with organizations and agencies in our service area to provide options and answers to those who seek them.
