AOASSC Receives National Award

On July 30th, the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) honored 52 programs with an impressive track record of success helping older Americans remain in their homes and communities for as long as possible. 

"With the health care landscape continuing to change rapidly, our members are discovering new ways to position themselves in the long-term and health care marketplaces, as well as to strengthen long-standing services, to meet the needs of America's rapidly growing older adult population," said n4a's Chief Executive Officer Sandy Markwood. "Our members work tirelessly, and with little fanfare in their communities, and this program enables us to shine a well-deserved spotlight on their critical work to support older adults' health, safety, independence and dignity," Ms. Markwood added.
