The Area Agency on Aging advocates for people just like you and your neighbors—those who want to retain as much independence as possible as you age.

As part of the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging:

  • We communicate with Ohioans about aging related issues and events on both state and federal levels
  • We maintain dialogue with elected and appointed officials about the needs of older Ohioans
  • We initiate and champion legislation and actions in support of Ohio’s older adults, their families, and caregivers and the programs and services that affect them
  • We track bills of interest to the aging network as they move through the legislative process on both state and federal levels.
