AGING SERVICES: Area Agencies On Aging

Area Agencies On Aging

Area Agencies on Aging are private, nonprofit planning agencies, each guided by its own Board of Directors and Advisory Council.  Through funding provided by the State Department on Aging, each AAA receives Federal Older Americans Act (Title III) funds and State funds that are allocated to elderly service providers through a request for proposal process. AAAs fund the following services:

1.  Social Services
2.  Nutritional Services
3.  Disease Prevention & Health Promotion Services
4.  Family Caregivers Support Services
5.  Adult Day Care Aide Positions (to provide day care services to victims of Alzheimersís Disease and related dementia). 

The five AAAs may also provide direct services in the areas of community education, advocacy, case management, information and assistance, benefits counseling and training.
