Every stage of life brings joys and challenges unique to an individual’s circumstances. For more than four decades Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) has provided the resources, programs and people to ensure that older adults and adults living with disabilities in Cumberland and York counties maintain their vitality well past the age of sixty.
Founded in 1973, under the authority of the federal Older Americans Act, SMAA is a non-profit organization dedicated to planning and implementing social services for adults age 60 and older.
The Agency provides many services and programs for seniors on a variety of issues, be they financial, medical, or personal. SMAA offers seminars to help navigate the array of insurance and Medicare options, delivers important dietary and fitness practices, and provides older adults with the opportunity to stay active in the community via participation or volunteerism. No matter the reason for your interest, be assured SMAA has the expertise to help find the answers you need.
SMAA's Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is part of the Corporation for National Community Service's (CNCS) SeniorCorps. RSVP acts as a clearinghouse, connecting senior volunteers to positions at dozens of nonprofits throughout Cumberland and York counties.
The Southern Maine Agency on Aging is one of five Agencies on Aging that serve the state of Maine.
