NAHC to Congress: Support Older Americans Act
Posted on Monday, February 10, 2020 1:46 PM
NAHC is asking Congress, and its constituents to support the Older Americans Act (OAA) to continue to create and offer home-based community care.
“The OAA is essential to developing, coordinating, and delivering home and community-based services that help older adults remain in their homes and communities as they age. Many individuals served by OAA-funded programs are at significant risk of hunger, isolation, abuse, and losing their ability to choose where they want to age. OAA-supported programs are provided to more than 11 million seniors and their caregivers annually, and include, but are not limited to, home- delivered and congregate nutrition services, in-home supportive services, multipurpose senior centers, transportation, caregiver support, disease prevention and health promotion, community service employment, the long-term care ombudsman program, and services to prevent the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older adults.”
The bill includes research innovation, Native American services, local planning and development, supports for those suffering from dementias and social isolation, legal services, nutrition, in-home supportive services, disease prevention and health promotion, multigenerational collaboration, and family caregiver supports. This is a bill that needs to pass to help our elderly who want to remain at home.
