The Office of the Area Agency on Aging is responsible for planning, coordinating, funding and advocating for programs and services which meet the needs of Wyandotte and Leavenworth County residents age 60 and over. Services are targeted to individuals with the greatest social and/or economic need, placing emphasis on serving those older persons who are low-income, minority and/or those with physical and mental disabilities.
As the population of seniors continues to increase, it is our goal to ensure that Wyandotte County’s older citizens age gracefully and with dignity, remain in the residence of their choice.
The mission of the Wyandotte/Leavenworth Area Agency on Aging is to act as the single-point-of-entry, whereas an older adult can navigate their way through the aging network and become linked with the services which allow them to make choices for themselves with a primary focus on maintaining independence in their own home and communities.
