The Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging (IAAAA) advocates for quality programs and services for older adults and persons with disabilities on behalf of Indiana’s 15 Area Agencies on Aging serving 16 planning and service areas.
Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) deliver services to older adults and people with disabilities of any age and their caregivers. They provide information about resources and service providers, assess needs for service, make referrals to case managers, link to services, monitor consumer satisfaction and adjust services to meet changing needs.
AAA’s staff will help you plan how best to meet your long-term services and support needs, whether that be through your own resources or those of your family, through community resources and/or through other sources of subsidy for which you may qualify.
Some subsidies are available based on age alone. Others are based on your level of disability, income and assets. Some subsidies may require a cost-share. You should contact your AAA to determine what resources are currently available and best fit your needs.
IAAAA believes in the individual’s right to:
- Choose among health care alternatives to maintain independence and dignity,
- Practice healthy lifestyles to have a happier, healthier, and longer life, and
- Be educated about services and alternatives available.
