Helpful information including Agency highlights, facts, and figures were included in the Area Agency on Aging District 7’s (AAA7) 2015 Annual Report that was presented during the Agency’s Annual Meeting at The Ohio State University Endeavor Center in Piketon, Ohio. The AAA7 provides services to ten counties in Ohio including Adams, Brown, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton.
The AAA7’s 2015 Annual Report, “Opening the Door to Options,” highlights the variety of programs and initiatives made possible through the work of AAA7 staff, Board of Trustees, Advisory Council, and provider organizations throughout the ten counties served by the AAA7. This year’s theme highlights the many options and resources the Agency can help individuals and their families identify in regard to long-term care and a number of other services available to older adults and those with disabilities. The programs provided through the AAA7 help older adults and those with disabilities live safely and independently in their own homes through services paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, other federal and state resources, as well as private pay.
“We were excited to develop a new format and design to our Annual Report for this year that gives us the opportunity to share the many achievements, commitment and dedication by all who work to make available program options for older adults and those with disabilities,” stated Pamela K. Matura, Executive Director of the Area Agency on Aging District 7. “Through the information available in the Annual Report, we hope that readers will have better knowledge of these services and the impact they make in providing resources that allow citizens in our 10 counties to remain in the one place they call their own…home.”
