Welcome to Experience, Inc.,

your Area Agency on Ageing for Warren/Forest Counties.

MISSION

The purpose and mission of Experience, Inc. is to provide, or arrange for, a comprehensive array of services intended to offset the gradual loss of functional abilities typically experienced by the elderly, with a corresponding continuum of care to enable elderly persons to maintain adequate functioning, and permit as independent a lifestyle as possible, preferably within the person's own home. We consider our consumers to be a most precious and deserving group, and believe it is an honor to assist them at this age. As they finish their journey through life, we hope to be an ally, an advocate, an ombudsman, a protector and, perhaps most importantly, a friend.

 

The goal of Experience, Inc. is to preserve self-support and, as much as possible, increase self-sufficiency. Care Managment Services are a series of coordinated staff activities. This free service includes a comprehensive assessment to determine a consumer's needs, help coordinate timely and appropriate services through the AAA and other resources in Warren and Forest Counties.
