What is an Area Agency on Aging?
In 1965, the Older Americans Act became the framework for a national network dedicated to working together to serve the nation’s older adults population. Amendments added in 1973 resulted in the formation of 667 Area Agency on Aging (AAA) programs nationwide.
The Area Agency on Aging is "Your Aging and Disability Resource Connection and links you to Community Resources." Information and referral services, as well as intake and screening services, are provided through the Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC).
