AAA MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Area Agency on Aging is to plan, coordinate and advocate for the development of a comprehensive service delivery system at the local level to meet the short and long-term needs of the Garrett County senior population


GUARDIANSHIP (Ext. 6136)

The AAA serves, by court appointment, as Guardian of person for disabled elderly who are 65 years of age or older.  As guardian, the AAA will arrange appropriate housing and make desisions regarding health care matters of clients.   Guardianship clients are monitored on a regular basis to ensure that appropriate care is being received and needs are met.

RESPITE CARE (Ext. 6133)

The AAA assists families who are caring for Alzheimer's patients or persons with other related disorders, by providing temporary respite care.  respite care enables family members to leave the patient with a trained caregiver while they shop, attend support group meetings or just have a few hours to themselves.  The Agency works cooperatively with the Health Department in providing this valuable service.

SENIOR CARE (Ext. 6168)

Senior Care is a State-funded program offering in-home services to seniors 65+, enabling them to remain independently in their homes. Available services include: Chore, Personal Care, Adult Day Care, Medications, Medical supplies, Medical Transportation, Assistive Devices and more.

OMBUDSMAN (Ext. 6140)

The Ombudsman Program is a federally mandated program designed to ensure that the rights of residents of long-term care facilities are upheld and they receive the qualitity of care they are entitled to under the law.

OLDER ADULTS WAIVER (Ext. 6133)

The Medicaid Waiver for Older Adults, administered at the local level by the Area Agency on Aging, is designed to enable individuals aged 50 and over, who require long-term care services, to remain in a community setting even though their advanced age or disability would warrant placement in a long term care facility.
