The mission of LCAAA is to serve as an advocate for persons 60 years and older by helping them to achieve a better quality of life; to secure and maintain independence and dignity in a home environment for older individuals who are capable of self care with the appropriate supportive services; to remove individual and social barriers to economic and personal independence for older individuals; and to provide a continuum of care to the vulnerable elderly, serving those older individuals most at risk of institutionalization.
Lake Country Area Agency on Aging (also known as LCAAA) began operating in January 1974, and the Nutrition Program began in August 1974. These two programs were consolidated into one department in January 1975. Services to the aged receive Title III and Title V funds from Older Americans Act and local funds from the Counties of Brunswick, Halifax, Mecklenburg, and the Town of South Hill.
The other programs of the Lake Country Area Agency on Aging have been added since the beginning of it’s operation to enhance the quality of life for the aging population of the community.

A Message From Our President
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion”. — Dalai Lama
Lake Country Area Agency on Aging’s (LCAAA) mission for our Older Loved Ones, “to remain in their own homes independently for as long as possible and to help retain one’s dignity in late life”, was entrenched at the very inception of LCAAA. The Agency endorses the following three principles in the development and evaluation of services for our older loved ones in Lake Country Area Agency on Aging’s Planning Service Area.
…..Maintaining and enhancing independent living.
…..Providing assistance to remain in one’s own home.
…..Providing adequate care for Older Loved Ones living away from home.
We embrace all backgrounds and cultures while striving to enhance our clients’ well-being regardless of race, gender, religion, faith, sexual preference, ethnicity and socioeconomic status. At LCAAA, we want to assist our senior citizens in maintaining their choice to remain independent, and being as healthy as possible. We dedicate ourselves as resources not only to our clients, but to the families and caregivers that entrust their loved ones, to our care. We are proud of the remarkable work of our staff.
I am personally committed to Lake Country Area Agency on Aging and the communities we serve. I will continue to advocate for the well-being of our senior citizens, our “Older Loved Ones”. Together with our staff and our community partnerships, I am in good company.
