Message from Your Aging and Disability
“The closest thing to being cared for, is to care for someone else.” ~Carson McCullers
At the Area Agency on Aging/Your Aging and Disability Resource Center we celebrate “caregivers”.... those amazing people without whose support, our loved ones, senior citizens, veterans, and people with disabilities.... and essentially anyone that needs “care”, would not be able to continue their respective lives as viable community members—living their lives as they see fit!
At Your Aging and Disability Resource Center, we have broadened our focus to not only assist and support senior citizens. people with disabilities and veterans; but also to include support for their caregivers in the process. The strain on the caregiver, whether, emotional, physical and/or financial, can be daunting.
Enter…Your Aging and Disability Resource Center who, along with our aging network partners, share a common vision of delivery of quality services and more importantly, support for our communities! That means care for the caregivers.
We believe in a core value system—focusing on four values that affect how we work as a team as well as how we relate to those we serve.
These values are:
Humility- the willingness to lift up others and put their needs first;
Gratitude/Appreciation- thankful for and in recognition of others for their respective roles;
Respect- for everyone!
Responsibility/Accountability- acceptance of personal and shared responsibility and willingness to be held accountable.
Accepting these core values and practicing them in our daily lives is how we conduct ourselves in the work place as well as how we work as we serve people in the community.
With an incredible team backed by core values, our Aging Network Partners, Statewide and National Partners, and a motivated community, there IS help out there! The world is changing, but aging remains constant. We are building and enhancing our services and programs and welcome your input.
“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” ~Margaret Mead
We are honored to serve the people of Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast Counties.
