Ohio’s Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) respond to the needs of older adults as advocates, planners and funders. AAAs provide education, information and referral services. AAAs work with the public and private sectors to help older adults with home and community-based long-term care.
Ohio has 12 AAAs that cumulatively represent all 88 counties. There are 670 AAAs nationwide. Ohio AAAs are designated by the Ohio Department of Aging. Sometimes they are referred to as PSAs, or Planning and Service Areas.
