WELCOME TO OHIO'S AREA AGENCY ON AGING 3
We are here to answer your questions and find programs and services in our area that are designed to make life easier for you and those you love. It is our privilege to assist seniors, persons with disabilities and their caregivers in our 7 county region.
On March 1, 2014, AAA3 expanded to cover Clark, Darke, Shelby, Logan, Miami, Preble and Champaign counties for the Ohio Home Care Waiver Program.
For over 30 years, the Area Agency on Aging has been a leader in helping those who desire safe, dignified, independent living. Give us a call...we'd be happy to help.
Area Agency on Aging 3 does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and/or age in the delivery of services.

Victim Assistance and Recovery Program for Elders and Disabled Adults
The Area Agency on Aging 3 is looking for compassionate and patient volunteers with strong communication skills to assist elder victims of crime in recovering and getting back their lives. Volunteer opportunities through our Victim Assistance Program offer a variety of different activities from community education and public relations to directly supporting a senior or adult with disabilities who has had his/her world turned upside-down by the actions of others. At times our volunteers work with staff, at other times they may work independently. Our volunteers regularly comment on how rewarding it is to know they have made a difference in the lives of people in need.
The volunteer will support the AAA3's mission of providing person-centered support that inspires, educates and empowers elders, adults with disabilities and their caregivers.
Victim Assistance Program volunteer opportunities exist in Allen, Auglaize, Hancock, Hardin, Putnam, Mercer and Van Wert Counties in west-central Ohio. Attending a short orientation is required and additional training will be offered throughout the year on relevant topics to ensure that the volunteers have the necessary knowledge and skills to feel comfortable in their roles and effectively assist program clients. For more information, please contact Marianne Bradshaw at 419-879-2392.
Companion Care Volunteer Program
We are currently seeking volunteers for our new program, the Companion Care Volunteer Program. This is a program for those 60 and older that need assistance with non-personal care related tasks, such as housekeeping, companionship and respite for regular caregivers.
If you have a desire to help people, and make a real difference in the lives of elders in our community, please contact Ann Meiring (419) 879-1373, or Miranda Van Rooyen (419) 879-3861.
