About the Milwaukee County Department On Aging

Milwaukee County is one of only SEVEN communities in the nation named as "most livable for people of all ages" and recognized for "best practices that can be used by local governments throughout the country in preparing for the aging of the baby boom population" by the United States Administration on Aging.

The federally designated Area Agency on Aging and the County Aging Unit for Milwaukee County serve residents age 60 and over.

The mission of the Milwaukee County Department on Aging is to affirm the dignity and value of older adults of Milwaukee County by supporting their choices for living in, and giving to, our community.  

The Milwaukee County Commission on Aging is a governing and policy-making body. 

The Department on Aging serves as the Commission's administrative arm.

Commissioners are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Board of Supervisors.  They are responsible for developing and implementing a coordinated human service system of community-based services for Milwaukee County residents aged 60 and older.
