Lewis-Mason-Thurston Area Agency on Aging

Services and resources for seniors, adults with disabilities and family caregivers in Lewis, Mason, and Thurston Counties

LMTAAA is a social service and a local governmental sponsored organization.  It is the federally recognized Area Agency on Aging for Lewis, Mason, and Thurston Counties.  The agency provides services and resources for older adults, adults living with disabilities and their families.  We are one team inspired by one vision: to enrich lives and support people to live fully and with dignity.

You can look to the Lewis-Mason-Thurston Area Agency on Aging to find help in making choices that are right for you or the person you care for. Our Senior Resource Directory is the definitive guide to local resources for seniors, adults with disabilities, and those who support them. We know that navigating all of the resources and services that exist can be a challenging task - we want to help, and our professional staff and helpful programs are just a phone call away.

More on what we do

As an Area Agency on Aging and a local pillar in the community, we play a key role in developing and maintaining a comprehensive system of assistance through planning, developing, coordinating and delivering a wide range of long term services and supports within Lewis, Mason, and Thurston counties. 

We support our communities and people to live lives with dignity, choice and independence by helping to keep people where they want to be – in their homes and in their communities for as long as possible which can help delay the more costly long term services and supports. 

We know we can’t do this work alone, in addition to our professional and passionate staff, we depend on our local partners to help us meet our mission. 

Caregiving Home Front

Gary StamperGary Stamper, Lewis County Commissioner  |  We are deeply saddened by the loss of Lewis County Commissioner Gary Stamper. Gary served on the Lewis Mason Thurston Area Agency governing board from 2015 - 2020. He was elected chair in 2019. Among many other notable contributions, Gary’s service with the LMTAAA helped create jobs, supported Veteran Directed Home Services, and helped expand home meal delivery programs for the aging population and people living with disabilities. He also supported a Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program that enabled those vulnerable populations to buy nutritious, locally grown products, thereby sustaining local and family-owned farms. Gary’s kindness and friendship will be greatly missed. We are deeply grateful for his leadership and support of our work. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and communities. May the flame he left in the incalculable number of hearts he touched glow ever brighter in his memory.
