Helping Families, Helping Each Other

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.
