What is a AAA?

The 28 area agencies on aging (AAA) provide services to help people age 60 and older, their family members and caregivers receive the information and assistance they need in locating and accessing community services. Services include:

  • Information, referral and assistance
  • Benefits counseling and legal assistance
  • Care coordination
  • Caregiver support services
  • In-home support services
  • Legal awareness
  • Nutrition services
  • Ombudsman Program

Services are provided to people age 60 and older and are targeted to those with greatest economic and social need. Particular attention is paid to people with low-incomes, older people who belong to minority groups and older people residing in rural areas. In addition, family members and other caregivers may receive information and services on behalf of the older person for whom they are providing care.

For more information about the program, read the AAA fact sheet.
