Maxine Ivey

Maxine Ivey serves as President of the Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc/Aging resource Center Board of Directors. She was appointed as a member to the board in May, 2004 to represent Santa Rosa County. She is the Executive Director of the Northwest Florida Rural Health Network and a member of the Jay City Council. Ms. Ivey is truly an advocate for the elderly land is constantly looking for new ways to serve the seniors in the area.

She and other board members are very active in aging activities. They work closely with staff in coordinating the annual regional fund raising events, such as the annual golf tournament, the annual regional training symposium and the senior expo. The funds derived from the three events are used as “emergency” funds which will provide assistance to the seniors who do not receive much needed services due to being ineligible for state of federal funds or being placed on a waitlist because of a lack of funds.

Ms. Ivey states "I am proud to be a member of the board of directors for the area agency on aging". The board and staff works in conjunction with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and other local, state and national agencies to facilitate the service needs of the consumers so they may age safely, with dignity and purpose in their own homes.
