About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of the Wayne County Area Agency on Aging is to act as an advocate to enhance the lives of Older Adults by promoting independence, empowerment, safety and security through available programs and partnerships.

We, as an Agency and staff, envision working with the entire community to advocate for older adults so that they may achieve a better quality of life, while maintaining independence and dignity in their home community. We are committed to concentrating resources of the frail, rural elderly, while recognizing the needs of the community as a whole. We intend to expand services with continued emphasis on quality programs, effective employees and innovative ideas that will enhance the ability of those aging in our community to be educated on the services that are available and make choices that best suit the needs of the individual and the family. We continue to protect adults in danger of neglect, abuse or exploitation and abandonment.
