AAA7 releases annual report highlighting programs in area

January 10, 2019

Helpful information including Agency highlights, facts and figures were included in the Area Agency on Aging District 7′s (AAA7) 2017 annual report that was recently presented during the agency’s annual meeting at The Ohio State University Endeavor Center in Piketon, Ohio. The AAA7 provides services to 10 counties in Ohio including Adams, Brown, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton.

The AAA7′s 2017 annual report, “It’s So Good to Be Home,” highlights the variety of programs and initiatives made possible through the work of AAA7 staff, the board of trustees, advisory council and provider organizations throughout the 10 counties served by the AAA7.

This year’s theme highlights the ways the AAA7 can support people living in their homes and communities by providing resources and options. The programs provided through the AAA7 help older adults and those with disabilities of any age live safely and independently in their own homes through services paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, other federal and state resources, as well as private pay.

“This annual report shares the many achievements, commitment and dedication by all who work to make available program options for older adults and those with disabilities,” stated Nina R. Keller, Interim Executive Director of the Area Agency on Aging District 7.

“As the age wave moves across the nation, we understand the need for quality services in the home and community, and choice when it comes to those services. We are proud of our role to provide to our community a better understanding of resources and options available to help with long-term care options and solutions for remaining at home.”
