As part of a national aging network, Alabama Tombigbee Area Agency on Aging provides many services to the senior and disabled population of Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Dallas, Marengo, Monroe, Perry, Sumter, Washington and Wilcox counties. We strive to reach older individuals with the greatest economic and social needs with particular attention given to low-income minority elders, individuals with limited English proficiency, individuals with disabilities, individuals at risk of institutional placement, and individuals residing in rural areas. The Area Agency on Aging advocates for seniors and helps them plan and manage their lives through a system of home and community-based services to maintain a lifetime of independence and dignity.
The SenioRx program is a prescription assistance program offered by the Area Agency on Aging. The goal of SenioRx is to assist qualified individuals to obtain free or low-cost brand name prescriptions from pharmaceutical companies. Those who qualify must be 55 years of age or older or disabled, with no prescription drug coverage and having a chronic medical condition. They must also meet specific income limits. Persons with insurance coverage who fall into the Medicare Part D coverage gap may also qualify for the program.
