Interagency Council on Aging of South Central Connecticut
About the Council
The Interagency Council on Aging of South Central Connecticut, convened by AOASCC, is a consortium of representatives from non-profit, for-profit and government agencies in the south central region that serve older adults and caregivers.
The mission of the Council is to bring together these providers for educational and networking opportunities. Each month the Council hears from a speaker on a current topic, followed by a time of sharing ideas across agencies.
A subgroup of the council, the Multi-Disciplinary Team (M-Team), meets to assist and educate care managers and service providers in addressing elder abuse, neglect or exploitation.
The M-Team is an opportunity for frontline staff to participate in case presentations about challenging cases, particularly cases with issues of elder abuse, neglect, exploitation, hoarding, abandonment….all the difficult cases with few options. M-Teams utilize case presentation, best practice, and brainstorming in a non-judgmental environment to support one another and occasionally identify an option that hasn’t already been explored.
