TENNESSEE AREA AGENCIES ON AGING & DISABILITY (AAADs)

    The map below is divided into districts that define area agencies, or the AAADs, the Area Agencies on Aging and Disability. These agencies plan and provide programs and services for older Tennesseans, as well as those with disabilities. Each area is numbered and colored to match the section of the list below that contains the contact information for your county. This is a great place to start if you are looking for services in your area.
