Keeping in line with the mission, vision and values of LAFA, the following information is meant to provide resources and information for professionals and the community. If you are unable to locate information on a specific resource please, contact LAFA for assistance.
There are many programs, services and organizations which provide services and support to seniors and their caregivers. The first step a person should take in identifying potential services is to contact the local Area Agency on Aging (AAA), that serves their community. AAAs were established through the Older Americans Act to provide a core of support services. These include: Care Management, Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy, Community Senior Employment Training, Family Caregiver Support Programs, Legal Assistance, Nutrition Services (Congregate and Home Delivered), and Health Services and Medical Screenings. In addition to these core services, each AAA provides other programs and services in their community.
To locate the AAA near you in the state of California call 1.800.510.2020, nationally contact the Elder Care Locator at 1.800.677.1116 or visit their website at www.eldercare.gov.
