Area Agencies on Aging are federally funded community organizations designed to assist elderly persons in finding health, social, respite and other services. They can also help you find volunteer opportunities, meal service sites and senior centers as well as respite care programs. Every sizeable community has one or is served by one. They can be found in your local phone books under a listing of federal government agencies, or through the National Eldercare Locator.
