Aging at Home Fairbanks is KUAC’s January Featured Sponsor
Aging at Home Fairbanks, a member organization offering support for older adults to live independently and to remain engaged in their community, has been serving Fairbanks since January 2016.
AAH members benefit from social and educational events. Volunteers are available to provide rides to appointments or take trash to the dump. They can also lend a helping hand with household chores or technical issues. When jobs around the house are too much to ask of a volunteer, members have access to a list of member-recommended paid providers in town.
During the last two years, AAH has organized various online meetings and lectures, many of which have been offered to the public. These include the five days of presentations in September during Falls Prevention Awareness Week and discussions with Alaska authors.
Aging at Home Fairbanks has nonprofit status under the fiscal sponsorship of North Star Council on Aging. As a member of the Village to Village Network, AAH joins a group of over 300 similar organizations with the goal of supporting older adults who are aging in place.
Barbara Lando, chairman of AAH, says, “We choose to be a supporter because KUAC keeps our members connected, not only to their local community, but to the world at large.”
