We are here to support residents in need by phone, mail, email, or online. In-person and walk-in services have been suspended, but we are still open.Welcome to the Aging Commission of the Mid-South. We offer programs that make a difference in the lives of all older adults and adults living with disabilities. From the older person who can remain at home if they receive the right services to those who are healthy and can benefit from the activities and socialization provided by our community-based programs, such as senior centers, we´re here to help.
Provide information and assistance to connect seniors, adults with disabilities, their families and caregivers with the tools needed to maximize their independence and safety in their chosen community.
