Championing a new way to age since 1975
As a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, AgingNext provides a broad array of programs, services, and support for older adults, caregivers, and others interested in enhancing aging services in our community. Working in concert with community leaders, social services, healthcare providers and city and county organizations, we play a unique role as a convener, information resource, and collaborator on senior issues in parts of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.

We believe in the power of community to change lives.
We’ve come a long way in pursuit of this goal, but there is still much to do—and we can’t do it alone! AgingNext relies on generous donations from organizations and individuals to ensure we continue to deliver free and low-cost age-wise programs and services to our community.
