Area Agencies on Aging provide services established and funded through the federal Older Americans Act. Some services are designed for the care of frail or disabled elders. Others are intended to keep relatively healthy people strong and active.
As we age, new challenges appear. The time comes when we have to think about not driving, and we'll need a social network so we don't become isolated. We might begin to need some help with everyday activities like bathing, shopping, vacuuming, or cooking.
