M4A is a private, non-profit organization that provides a unifying voice for Maineâ€™s 5 Area Agencies on Aging on issues that promote independence, dignity and economic self-reliance for Maineâ€™s 200,000+ seniors. As part of this work, M4A leads Maineâ€™s aging network and advocates for the health and economic security of older Mainers through the Maine Council on Aging. M4A is also leading efforts in northern New England to build stronger communities that help older adults age in place through the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging.
Maineâ€™s network of Agencies on Aging is the leading source of information for thousands of Maine seniors on aging, healthy living and benefits. Programs and outreach support services are designed to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of older adults and to reduce the burden on families and caregivers.
The Area Agencies on Aging make a difference in the everyday lives of Maineâ€™s older adults. They bring meals, provide family caregiver support, offer expert advice on insurance and drug benefits, and direct disabled and aging Mainers to appropriate community resources. Maybe most importantly, they provide a community for seniors â€“ places for social interaction, learning and care.
