About Aging Partners

Letter from the Director

June Pederson

I'm delighted that you have come to the Aging Partners Home Page. We've worked to make it easy to navigate and we welcome your suggestions for improvements.

Our Agency's 175 employees are eager to offer our services whether you need help with a question about aging or if you are looking for fun things to do with others. It's all here.

Aging Partners is designed to either answer your question directly or to connect you with someone who can. We can help you find a meal program or someone to come to your home to help with more serious problems as well as all the issues in between. If you are concerned about a parent, a neighbor or have questions yourself, Aging Partners is the place to start.

Staying healthy as we age is vital. Our Health & Fitness Program can help you in many ways. Click on Health & Fitness. Do you want to take a trip, or see a movie, play or go see a baseball game with friends? Click on Classes & Events. Do you have time to be a volunteer? We have many ideas in our Volunteer Programs' section.

If you need transportation, or something repaired at your home, call our Transportation or Handyman office. If you'd like to earn some money and use your handyman talents, we'd like to talk with you about how that can be done.

Thank you for visiting our Web site. Come back often and tell your friends. This Agency is focused on giving you choices about how you want to live your life. We welcome you to Aging Partners.

Sincerely,
June Pederson, Director
