Information & Referral
AAANM is the place to turn with questions about aging services. We serve as the gateway to local aging resources, planning efforts and services to help older adults remain independent.
One of the most meaningful services that we provide
Reliable information and timely assistance in accessing services. We will listen to your unique life situation, present options, and help guide you to information and resources.
