The demographics of our region’s older adult population are changing in terms of size, diversity and needs. There are now more North Carolinians over the age of 60 than under the age of 18, with over two million older adults over the age of 65 residing in our state. Many of these older adults want to stay in their communities and in their own home for as long as possible.

The Centralina Area Agency on Aging (AAA) strives to support and improve the quality of life for older and disabled adults, their families and caregivers throughout our nine-county region. By offering direct services, programming, planning and technical assistance, Centralina AAA helps residents age with choice, dignity and independence.
