Why Call the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging?

Bethany Anderson, Public Information Director, and Lynn Dobb, Caregiver Advocate and Education and Training Manager,  joined us on 8/8/13 to discuss a variety of topics related to the mandate, mission and work of the COAAA.  The reoccurring message was simply this:  if you are a senior living in central Ohio and you need help or assistance of any kind, please contact or call the COAAA today.   They are an incredible and tremendous resource for seniors.

Topics of discussion included the Ohio PASSPORT Program, Assisted Living Waiver Program, free Caregiver Support groups, and Medicare education.  As you can see, although we are quick to associate COAAA with the PASSPORT Program they oversee, they are instrumental in proving many other senior and caregiver services.

Don't forget to attend or participate in the upcoming Senior Living Festival.  The festival will be held on Oct 31st, 2013 from 10 am - 2pm at Veterans Memorial at 300 West Broad Street in Columbus, Ohio.  Click here for more information.
