AAA7 releases annual report


Staff Report



Helpful information including Agency highlights, facts and figures were included in the Area Agency on Aging District 7’s (AAA7) 2019 annual report that was recently presented to the AAA7 Board of Trustees at its December meeting, according to a news release from the agency.

The AAA7 provides services to ten core counties in Ohio including Adams, Brown, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton.

The AAA7’s 2019 Annual Report, “Starting a New Chapter,” 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 ten core counties served by the AAA7, and additional counties the AAA7 serves in Ohio through other contracted programs. 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 a great deal of valuable information about the many programs and services we provide to seniors and those of any age living with a disability in our district,” stated Nina R. Keller, executive director of the Area Agency on Aging District 7. “We are proud of the four decades of service we have provided to our communities and the growth and expansion we have witnessed over those years. Our reach to help others has expanded over time with the opportunities to serve our district in new and unique ways. We look forward to many more years of providing quality home and community-based long-term care programs and resources to our growing area.”
