Alaska Commission on Aging

The mission of the Alaska Commission on Aging is to ensure the dignity and independence of all older Alaskans, and to assist them to lead useful and meaningful lives through planning, advocacy, education, and interagency cooperation.

State Plan for Senior Services

Every four years, the Alaska Commission on Aging produces a plan which serves as a roadmap for addressing the issues affecting Alaskan Seniors. We are currently in the process of finalizing the plan for fiscal years 2024 – 2027.

Visit our State Plan for Senior Services page for more information on the process.

Many falls can be prevented by making changes that lower your chances of falling.
