A message from the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging:

The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging is working diligently to support Ohio’s Areas Agencies on Aging and the aging and disability network to understand the challenges they face to maintain the health and safety of staff and the individuals they serve during this time. 

We applaud Governor Mike DeWine’s and Department of Health Director Amy Acton’s leadership, and the guidance received on a daily basis from the Ohio Departments of Aging and Medicaid and local authorities as we ensure that older Ohioans who are most vulnerable and at high risk continue to be served. 

We are closely monitoring the ever-changing developments of COVID-19, commonly known as Coronavirus. The State of Ohio is taking measures to prevent the spread of the virus, and we are following the guidance and recommendations of state and health experts to prevent illness.  

Older adults requiring assistance due to COVID-19 can call their local Area Agency on Aging,  their local public health department, or their local 211 for resources.

You can also call 1-866-243-5678 to be connected to the area agency on aging serving your community.

We have created a web page with a list of online resources. If you have additions to suggest, please contact us.

The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (o4a) is a nonprofit, statewide network of agencies that provide services for older Ohioans, people with disabilities and their families. The Association engages in national and statewide advocacy to address issues which have an impact on the aging and disability network and older Ohioans and people with disabilities, provides services to members, and serves as a collective voice for Ohio’s Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs).

o4a Annual  Conference for Aging and Disability Resource Networks

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the 31st Annual Conference for Aging and Disability Networks!

“It was an incredible opportunity to be an o4a sponsor …We brought over half of our staff members with us over the course of the two days, and thoroughly enjoyed getting to interact face-to-face with many of the providers and people we speak to on the phone daily. These interactions helped bridge the gap between provider and case manager and acknowledge our common goal of keeping our clients healthy and happy!” – o4a Annual Conference Sponsor
