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.
Elders' Rights includes abuse prevention and long-term care ombudsman programs
