50 Years of Supporting Countless Journeys!

Aging Ahead is celebrating!  We have been supporting older adults for 50 years and we welcome you to join us as we mark this special achievement! As we kick off this year of celebrating, we want to share some information about the impact we’ve had in the communities we serve over the last 5 decades.

Aging Ahead, an area agency on aging, was founded in 1973 in response to the Older Americans Act to provide essential services, programs, and resources to those aged 60 years and older (and their caregivers) throughout St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Franklin counties.

Aging Ahead’s Senior Nutrition Programs have served millions of meals to help ensure older adults live a nourished life.  These meals are either delivered to homebound clients or those attending our center and community locations. “Aging Ahead is the best thing that’s happened to me. Because of the meals, I’m able to care for myself better”–  Evelyn

Volunteers with Aging Ahead’s Meals on Wheels program deliver not only nutritious meals to homebound older adults, but also caring concern and attention to their welfare.  “Volunteering saved me. I was struggling with depression, and this has helped me a great deal. Being there for people, putting a smile on their faces puts a smile on my face.” – Angie

Aging Ahead’s Community Options and Services team provides critical connection to programs, resources and services to older adults and their caregivers.  Our Family Caregiver Support Program offers essential options for those caring for a loved one.  “I can’t thank Aging Ahead enough. The hours of adult daycare were GOLDEN to me. There’s no other way to explain it.  Thank you so much.” –Joyce.

Aging Ahead offers a plethora of socialization opportunities for older adults to stay connected with their communities and each other to help combat loneliness and isolation. “The virtual meetings are a true godsend! Contact with people is so critical to staying healthy and well!” –Donald

Evidence-based healthy living programs provide participants with information and skills to live their best lives.  “You’ve put in our hands what new need to manage our lives. Everyone in this class has been so helpful, taking it seriously but also having fun. I appreciate you all” – Attendee
