Alabama Department of Senior Services
Our vision is to help society and state government prepare for the changing aging demographics through effective leadership, advocacy and stewardship. The Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS) is a cabinet level state agency that administers programs for senior citizens and people with disabilities. The department was originally established by the Alabama Legislature in 1957 as the Alabama Commission on Aging. ADSS was established under Title 38 Chapter 3 of the Code of Alabama.
