Our Mission

The Southern Maine Agency on Aging's mission is to improve the quality of life for older adults, adults with disabilities, and the people who care for them.

Our Vision
We envision a community in which older people are able to live to their
fullest potential.
We will provide older adults in southern Maine with useful information,
resources, and services to help them meet their changing needs.
We will promote effective learning, social connections and healthy
lifestyles that maximize independence and security.
We will provide extra help to those who are challenged by unusual health,
social and/or economic circumstances.
We will offer older adults meaningful volunteer opportunities so they,
and their families, will experience productive and fulfilling lives while
benefiting their communities.
We will promote partnerships throughout the community to enhance our
reach and effectiveness for the benefit of older adults.

with disabilities, and family caregivers, through measurably effective
