AREA AGENCY on AGING Area Agency on Aging Home Page

Area Agencies on Aging provide local services, act as advocates, and generally assist older citizens to remain active in their communities. We operate under program guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, with County, State and Federal funding.

The purpose of the Area Agency on Aging is to plan and coordinate the provision of services to the OLDER ADULTS in Northampton County.
These services, delivered directly, purchase of service from a community agency, or by cooperative agreement, are designed to enhance the independence and dignity of older adults, and to provide protection as well.

The Area Agency on Aging serves residents of Northampton County who are 60 years of age or older. No distinction is made on the basis of race, color, nationality, creed, sex or income. The Area Agency on Aging is an Affirmative Action Employer and Provider.

 Outstanding Senior Awards

The Advisory Council of the Northampton County Area Agency on Aging has chosen this years nominees for the Outstanding Senior Awards.  They will be announced soon.  The Award Program will be held at Wesley United Methodist Church, 2540 Center Street, Bethlehem, PA on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. 

Last year the Advisory Council of the Northampton County Area Agency on Aging honored ten older adult residents, and one group, who have contributed their time and talents for the benefit of others in the community. The “Outstanding Senior Awards” Program took place at Wesley United Methodist Church, 2540 Center Street, Bethlehem, PA.

Several Northampton County Council members were present as well as two State Representatives. We honored our county residents from the following: Washington Township, Northampton, Lower Saucon Township, Bethlehem, Hellertown, Bethlehem Township, Bushkill Township, East Allen Township and Palmer Township- a good representation of our entire County.
