Seniors Website Update 12/19/12

 

New Improved Website for Local Seniors, Caregivers and Professionals

An abundance of information can be found in books, magazines and websites about: growing older, staying independent and caring for aging parents.  However, it can be very difficult to find public services near you such as Transportation, Legal Advice, and support for Family Caregivers, unless you know where to look.  To help address that problem, Area 4 Agency on Aging (A4AA) is pleased to present our newly redesigned website: www.a4aa.com

For almost 40 years, A4AA has contracted with fellow non-profit organizations to provide federal, Older Americans Act (OAA) services to people age 60 and older.  “Meals on Wheels” is the program people know best.  But people may not know that Area 4 is the major funding source for Meals on Wheels, senior lunch sites and many other services in our region, which includes Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties.

By law, OAA services are free to eligible seniors, regardless of income; although donations are encouraged. To learn more about these services in your area – and for news, facts and event announcements – please visit our new website: www.a4aa.com

To speak to someone in person about any of these topics, call your local Senior Information & Assistance program at (800) 510-2020 or call the Area 4 office directly at (916) 486-1876.
