Welcome


Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging is an Aging and Disability Resource Center. We serve a 10 county area that includes: Bureau, Henderson, Henry, Knox, LaSalle, McDonough, Mercer, Putnam, Rock Island and Warren County. We ensure coordinated, accessible services for older persons to live independent, meaningful and dignified lives. Our community focal points in each county that are senior centers serve as congregate meal sites as well as areas for seniors to go for activities and socialization. We advocate at local, state, and federal levels for seniors and adults with disabilities. WIAAA also funds Home Delivered Meal programs, transportation as well as respite for caregivers. Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is located in our building and is a great volunteer resource. WIAAA is a certified SHIP site and counselors are available to provide information and direct assistance regarding Medicare, Medicare D plans, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage plans, Medicaid, etc.
