The Appalachian Council of Governments (ACOG) serves as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for the six-county Appalachian Region (Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Oconee, Pickens and Spartanburg counties). The AAA provides information and assistance to older adults, persons with disabilities and caregivers. We also operate the Regional Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, the Regional Family Caregivers Program, the I-CARE program, and Appalachian Assisted Rides program.
This website offers information in a "self-serve" format 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you prefer to speak with a representative, assistance is available Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at 1-800-434-4036 or 864-242-9733 for local callers.
