The San Juan County Area Agency on Aging is committed to promoting the dignity and well being of older persons-both as individuals within their families and in our communities. We respect the right to a quality of life. We are committed to a high level of professionalism and leadership in our work and to the community.
One of the OAA’s (Older Americans Act) foundational principles is that the programs and services created to help support consumers in their homes and communities are customized to meet their individual needs. There’s nothing one-size-fits-all about AAAs or the services they offer their clients!
Roles of all AAAs: Assess community needs and develop and fund programs that respond to those needs; educate and provide direct assistance to consumers about available community resources for long-term services and supports; serve as portals to care by assessing multiple service needs, determining eligibility, authorizing or purchasing services and monitoring the appropriateness and cost effectiveness of services; and demonstrate responsible fiscal stewardship by maximizing use of public and private funding to serve as many consumers as possible.
Elder Rights includes abuse prevention and long-term care ombudsman programs
