    Information and Assistance

     

    The Older Americans Act of 1965 as amended called for the provision of Information and Assistance (I & A) services. The provision of I & A for older persons and their families is designed to:

    • Assess and evaluate an individual's needs.
    • Inform and educate about programs and services available across the long-term care continuum
    • Refer and/or directly connect the individual to appropriate resources.
    • Provide assistance to negotiate the service delivery system.
    • Work with long distance caregivers in identifying and locating needed services.
    • Advocate on behalf on individuals or a group to obtain change in the delivery or availability of services.

    Contact Heather Burkhardt at the Division with questions concerning Information and Assistance.
