About the Area Agency on Aging

The Alabama Tombigbee Regional Commission (ATRC), Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is a part of a state-wide aging network that provides a variety of Home and Community based services to the region’s senior and disabled populations and their caregivers. As one of thirteen AAA offices in the state, the Alabama Tombigbee Regional Commission has proudly served the region for more than 45 years. The counties served include Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Dallas, Marengo, Monroe, Perry, Sumter, Washington, and Wilcox. The AAA works with public agencies and private businesses to provide a full range of health, education and social services with the goal of fostering independence and improving the quality of life for those we serve.

With many overlapping federal and state programs, individuals seeking help often need assistance understanding which services are available and whether they qualify. The AAA can provide information and assistance to help people access public and private supports and services. The AAA manages programs funded by the Federal Older Americans Act as well programs funded by the state of Alabama.

For information and assistance, call (334) 682-5206 or 888-617-0500.

Do you want to know a secret?
Kids are not the only ones that love and can benefit from being read to or reading to someone.

You can have a visit out on the front porch and read to them or you can even make their day over the phone! Books take all of us on adventures and allow the mind to fly!

Through partnership with Dementia Friendly Alabama, our agency has Dementia Resource Guides available for those who need them. The guide will provide you with basic information and may help those who are unsure where to go for resources and information. The goal of this guide is to point you in the right direction about specific topics related to dementia.

Have the guide mailed to you by calling us at 1-888-617-0500 or 334-682-5206.

If you are a caregiver to someone with dementia and would like to be screened for services from the Area Agency on Aging, ask for the ADRC staff when you call. We are here to help!
