Aging Services

Richmond County Aging Services is an organization that provides a focal point for aging resources as well as opportunities to extend independent living and enrich the quality of life for Richmond County older adults.

Aging is a normal developmental process that brings both rewards and challenges. Older adults have ambitions and are capable of continued growth and development. They have certain basic needs, including the need for opportunities for relationships and for experiencing a sense of achievement.

Older adults have a right to a voice in determining matters that impact them, and access to sources of information and assistance for personal and family problems, including opportunities to learn from individuals coping with similar experiences.
