Three Rivers Area Agency on Aging

EmpowerlinePRO is an expanded information and referral database with over 22,000 records statewide containing detailed information on a variety of aging services. The database is used by information and referral specialists, case managers and professionals from county governments, agencies, area hospitals, managed care programs and a variety of other organizations serving the older adult populations. ePRO categorizes information about aging service providers into 50 major categories and over 296 service areas. This is a link to some of the resources available in this database for the public to have access to resources available in their local community. https://findservices.empowerline.org/

Our mission is to promote independence and well-being for older persons and adults with disabilities in the Three Rivers Region by providing quality programs and services.

What is an Area Agency on Aging?

In 1965, the Older Americans Act became the framework for a national network dedicated to working together to serve the nation’s older adults population. Amendments added in 1973 resulted in the formation of 667 Area Agency on Aging (AAA) programs nationwide.

 

 

The Area Agency on Aging is "Your Aging and Disability Resource Connection and links you to Community Resources." Information and referral services, as well as intake and screening services, are provided through the Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC).

Services Offered

Working with the Area Agency on Aging for the coordination of existing services and the development of new services are federal, state and local officials, older adults and disability community constituents, non-profit agencies, service providers, and the private voluntary sector.

TRAAA is staffed with professionals assigned to receive inquiries, primarily by phone, regarding services and resources. In many cases, the caller's needs can be easily addressed by providing a referral to a community resource or allied agency. In other instances, the staff will perform a thorough assessment of needs through a guided interview process, which allows staff to better assist callers in finding appropriate services. Assistance is available immediately if you are able to pay for services.

With information about home and community based services, Georgians can make informed decisions about how best to manage their future.
