Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs)

AAAs coordinate and offer services that help older adults remain in their home, if that is their preference. Services might include Meals-on-Wheels, homemaker assistance, and whatever else it may take to enable the individual to stay in his or her own home. By making a range of options available, AAAs make it possible for older individuals to choose home-and community-based services and a living arrangement that suits them best.
