'How Can the Area Agency on Aging Help Me?' has been published on Loudoun Senior Interest Network
http://loudounseniors.org/?p=2644
There is a national network of 622 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) that are represented by The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a), which is a 501c(3) membership association. AAAs are responsible for successfully developing, coordinating and delivering aging services in communities throughout the US. Each year more than eight million older Americans and caregivers receive our assistance.
Your local Area Agency on Aging provides a range of options that allow older adults to choose the home and community-based services and living arrangements that suit them best (“age in place”).
Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) have highly visible and trusted sources of information where you can find a full range of long-term support options and access to public long-term support programs and benefits. Nearly 75% of AAAs perform ADRC functions in their communities. These centers provide unbiased, reliable information and counseling to individuals with all levels of income. They assist family caregivers in obtaining long-term support and services. Families can get help with using resources wisely, which in turn can help “spend-down” to Medicaid or unnecessary institutionalization.
It’s estimated that about 30 percent of the general population provides care for an older adult, or someone living with illness or disability. Almost 90 percent of people age 65 and older want to age in place (i.e., stay in their homes and communities) for as long as possible. Many older adults rely on family or friends as caregivers for support. Area Agencies on Aging provide direct support to caregivers, including respite care, counseling and support groups, caregiver education classes/training, and emergency assistance.
AAAs connect families with local providers who can help them create a caregiving plan, address specific challenges, or identify support services.
Other areas where AAAs can assist are transitions (ex; from rehab to home), detection and prevention of elder abuse, assistance with understanding health insurance, programs to help older adults and their caregivers better manage their health, home services (home-delivered meals, home health care, homemaker/chore services, transportation, caregiver support services and much more), volunteer resources, and more.
An example of volunteer resources would be the Chore Corps in Ashburn, Virginia, which is a group of volunteers that provides minor home repairs to seniors needing assistance.
Northern Virginia Area Agencies on Aging include:
Loudoun County Area Agency on Aging, 20145 Ashbrook Pl Suite 170, Ashburn, VA 20147, (703) 777-0257
Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging, 460 Lendall Ln, Fredericksburg, VA 22405, (540) 371-3375
