Aging at Home Fairbanks
(AAH Fairbanks) is a membership organization for older adults in the Fairbanks area.  Members help each other remain independent and engaged as they age.

 

For an annual membership fee, members will have one-call access to services and support to help them stay in their homes as they grow older.  Most services are provided by volunteers.  For services that are beyond volunteer capacity, such as major home repairs and home health-care needs, members have access to a list of screened paid providers.  Social get-togethers, lectures, and educational workshops are added benefits!

 
AAH Fairbanks is a program of the non-profit North Star Council on Aging and is a member of the Village to Village Network of similar organizations.
Aging is a team sport.  Let's enjoy it together!
