The federal Older Americans Act (OAA) is an important safety net for individuals who are at risk economically, medically and socially. Under this act, Area Agencies on Aging are the local organizations charged with designing and funding systems that prolong independent, meaningful life at home and within communities—avoiding institutional care.

Several factors can create a higher risk for losing an independent life style and possibly being admitted to institutional care. MA4 and the Missouri Area Agencies on Aging have created a new document that explains what those higher risk factors are, and why funding for programs like Medicaid and home and community-based services is so critical.

This week’s featured story demonstrates how things can change deamatically when a loved one dies or whne eligibility rules change when your lifestyle changes. Just ask Mary, a caregiver and diabetic whose whole situation changed when her husband died.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE STORY.
