Elder Care Government Agencies
The Administration on Aging provides home and community-based services to millions of older persons through programs funded by the Older Americans Act. Currently, the AoA provides an overview of topics, programs and resources related to aging for seniors and caregivers as well as community service providers, researchers, and students.
The Commission on Aging's mission is to advocate on behalf of elderly persons in Connecticut by regularly monitoring their status, assessing the impact of current and proposed initiatives, and conducting activities which promote the interest of these individuals and to report to the Governor and the Legislature.
