Southern Maine Agency on Aging Partnership Projects

We believe strong partnerships mean more older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers will be connected with the services they need. Strong partnerships with other organizations - businesses, non-profits, municipalities, foundations, universities, and more - mean broader and more meaningful impact.

With a focus on the well-being of older Mainers and its dedication to falls prevention programs, the Maine Medical Center has committed to sponsoring the 2023 slate of "A Matter of Balance" classes, organized by the Southern Maine Agency on Aging and conducted by volunteer instructors. These classes will be conducted both in-person and virtually throughout the year. 
If you would like to learn more about A Matter of Balance class, you can request a video recording from our A Matter of Balance Sampler class.  Request now.
The Outreach team in Community Services began a new project through Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging. This year-long grant aims to improve social connectedness in homebound older adults by integrating a brief evidenced-based telehealth intervention into our services.
We are looking forward to collaborating with University of New England Occupational Therapy Students this Spring. The students from the Health Wellness and Occupational Studies class will be working on their certification in Assistive Technology. More information to come!
We sent our first Activity Boxes to Meals on Wheels clients residing at York County, an activity made possible by a grant from Huntington Common Charitable Foundation. The Activity Boxes project aims to set up a sense of purpose, ownership, and independence; gain feelings of accomplishment; promote emotional connection and self-expression, and increase mental engagement in the home-bound Meals on Wheels clients - all of which are shown to decrease social isolation, anxiety, depression, and stress. The Activity Boxes project is looking to expand its reach and involve also clients at Cumberland County as well as our Community Cafes in both counties. If you or a partner organization are interested in being part of the Activity Box project, please, reach out to Ashley Perrone ( to discuss partnership opportunities.
