Older Americans Act : Provisions, Funding & Programs Paperback / softback
Edited by Jamie N. Palamino
The Older Americans Act (OAA) is the major federal vehicle for the delivery of social and nutritional services for older persons.
These include supportive services, congregate nutritional services (meals served at group sites such as senior centres, community centres, schools, churches, or senior housing complexes), home-delivered nutritional services, family caregiver support, community service employment, the long-term care ombudsman program, and services to prevent the abuse, neglect and exploitation of older persons.
This book provides an overview of the services and issues of the Older Americans Act and provides information about legislation which would increase authorisations or funding to certain OAA programs.
