Health, Independence, Choice


Region 3B Area Agency on Aging is one of 16 area agencies on aging in Michigan created by the Older Americans Act and governed by the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging. As an area agency on aging, we are charged to:

  • Advocate on behalf of older adults and their caregivers
  • Administer federal, state, local and private funds to support services and programs for older adults.
  • Fund programs that serve older adults in Barry & Calhoun counties.
  • Identify the needs of seniors and develop plans to enable older adults to maintain their independence with dignity through person-centered services.

Due to our mission, governance and funding sources the majority of persons we serve are seniors or disabled individuals aged 18 years of age or older. We refer persons whose age or health is outside the demographic scope of our mission to appropriate agencies, programs or services for their needs.

Region3B AAA’s policy prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, disability, marital status, familial status, veteran status, or height and weight, in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local laws.

Certain programs or services, like MI Choice Waiver, may be subject to age, health, income and asset eligibility criteria. Most services are free of charge, however, donations and cost sharing helps us extend our services to as many people as possible.
