Administration on Aging (AoA)
Mission:To develop a comprehensive, coordinated and cost-effective system of home and community-based services that helps elderly individuals maintain their health and independence in their homes and communities.
The Administration on Aging (AoA) serves as an advocate for older people and oversees the development of a comprehensive and coordinated system of care that is responsive to the needs and preferences of older people and their family caregivers.
AoA is one of the nation's largest providers of home and community based care for older persons and their caregivers. Created in 1965 with the passage of the Older Americans Act, AoA is part of a federal, state, tribal and local partnership called the National Network on Aging. This network provides assistance and services to older individuals and their families in urban, suburban, and rural areas throughout the United States.
While all older Americans may receive services, AoA targets those older individuals who are in greatest economic and social need: the poor, the isolated, and those elders disadvantaged by social or health disparities.
