Directory of State Agencies on Aging

When it comes to caring for elderly parents, you are not alone. Promoting and encouraging the health, independence and dignity of America’s seniors is a mission of the federal government and the states. The passage of the Older Americans Act in 1965 by Congress established the Administration on Aging, which is tasked with developing “a comprehensive, coordinated and cost-effective system of home and community-based services that helps elderly individuals maintain their health and independence in their homes and communities.” To accomplish this goal, AoA distributes grant monies to states to fund state and community-based services or resources that provide assistance to seniors and their families with transportation, assistance with daily living activities, health care and nutrition.

To receive grant funding, states are required to have a unit that is responsible for writing a State Plan on Aging that details how services and resources are coordinated to serve seniors and individuals with disabilities in their state. Oftentimes this unit also distributes grant monies to locally-based Area Agencies on Aging that work directly with seniors and their families. States also offer Aging and Disability Resource Centers that connect seniors and their families to resources offered in their county or throughout the state.

Below is a listing of states and the agency that serves as an advocate and resource for the seniors in their state.
