Young at Heart Resources is a not-for-profit planning and service organization whose home office is in Albany, Missouri, with a field office located in Cameron.

We were founded as the Northwest Missouri Area Agency on Aging in 1973, and adhere to the Older Americans Act.


To empower and provide older adults of Northwest Missouri the opportunity to live safe, healthy, independent lives in the home environment of their choice.


The mission of Young at Heart Resources is to promote systems that maintain and enhance the quality of life for older adults in the home environment of their choice.

This is done by listening to the needs, identifying and coordinating resources, planning, developing and implementing programs, services and systems for older adults and their caregivers. Young at Heart Resources strives to ensure effective, efficient use of resources and supports individual choice and informed decision making.


Our client base includes today’s seniors, who are often active and vibrant, along with their partners and caregivers, as well as individuals with disability.

Our board and staff are committed to the well-being of these clients, and to promoting continued physical, social, and economic self-sufficiency for each of them. With this in mind, we connect consumers to benefits counseling, transportation, advocacy and legal aid, respite care, in-home services, nutrition, healthy living, and more.

Since 1973 we’ve offered exceptional customer care, positive growth, and the trusted, unbiased assistance we’re known for here in Northwest Missouri.
