Area Agency on Aging

Read AAA News & Notes for elder services tips, news and opportunities.

See Senior Update Newsletters and other resources below.

The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is the local arm of the national aging network. Federal, state, local governments, private agencies (not for profit as well as for profit), work together to advance the social and economic health and well being of elders (60 and over) in Alameda County.

Every four years, the AAA prepares an Area Plan that directs the provision of services for seniors.  The services are provided by community-based organizations.

An Advisory Commission on Aging (ACA), made up of representatives concerned about the needs and interests of elders in Alameda County, and appointed by the Board of Supervisors, the Conference of Mayors, and the ACA, work in concert with the staff of the AAA to develop, plan, and administer programs designed to assist elders and their caregivers in the county.

The Area Agency on Aging hosts a bi-monthly Information and Assistance Roundtable meeting. Topics include presentations on healthcare legislation, elder issues, etc., and offer a chance for attendees to get acquainted and exchange information.  The AAA provides free Information & Assistance by telephone (800-510-2020 or 510-577-3530).


The AAA provides subcontracted services to persons aged 60 and older through grants from the Federal Administration on Aging, State of California, and the County of Alameda. These services include:

  • Adult Day Care
  • Alzheimer's Services (Day Care and Respite)
  • Case Management (Social Worker)
  • Community Services
  • Disease Prevention
  • Elder Abuse Prevention
  • Family Caregiver Support Program

  • Health Services
  • Information & Assistance
