Monterey County Area Agency on Aging

The Monterey County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is part of a nationwide network of services designed to assist low-income residents as they age. Every local AAA determines the priorities in their area and then decides how to use limited resources to meets those needs. As a result, there can be big differences in AAAs across California and the United States.

The mission of the Monterey County AAA is to provide leadership in addressing issues that relate to older Monterey County residents; to develop community-based systems of care that provide services which support independence, and which protect the quality of life of older persons and persons with functional impairments; and to promote citizen involvement in the planning and delivery of services.

La Area Agency on Aging (AAA) del Condado de Monterey es parte de una cadena nacional de servicios diseñados para asistir a residentes de bajos ingresos a medida que envejecen. Cada AAA local determina las prioridades en su área y decide cómo utilizar los recursos limitados para cumplir con esas necesidades. Como resultado, puede haber grandes diferencias en agencias AAA a través de California y los Estados Unidos.

La misión del AAA del Condado de Monterey es proveer liderazgo al afrontar cuestiones relacionadas con residentes mayores del Condado de Monterey; desarrollar sistemas de cuidado basados en la comunidad que proveen servicios respaldando la independencia y protegiendo la calidad de vida de personas mayores y personas con discapacidades; y promover la participación de los habitantes en planificar y distribuir servicios.
