About Aging Matters

Aging Matters, also known as Southeast Missouri Area Agency on Aging, is a not for profit organization serving an eighteen county area in Southeast Missouri, with the regional office in Cape Girardeau. The essential goal of our organization is to provide quality services to enhance the health, safety, and well-being of persons, age 60 and over, enabling them to live in their own homes for as long and independently, as possible.

An eighteen-member Board of Directors governs the Agency. One delegate from each county is elected by adults, 60 years of age and older, living in the service area.

Areas We Serve

We happily serve the counties of Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Dunklin, Iron, Madison, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Perry, Reynolds, Ripley, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, Scott, Stoddard and Wayne.

What Client's Say
I thank God often and have told all who I talked to...for the help we have received through your agency.  We were having a hard time paying for supplies and keeping bills paid. I have recommended a lot of my friends. May God bless all of the workers and increase your funds to be able to continue to help people like us. When possible I would love to....repay the SEMO Area Agency on Aging (Aging Matters). Thanks again for your kindness and help with my husband's supplies. February 11, 2015
