States have the option of cost sharing for some Older Americans Act programming. Cost sharing usually involves a sliding scale so that programs are still accessible for low-income seniors. For certain Older Americans Act programming, such as elder abuse prevention and meals, cost sharing is not permitted. Other programs offered by counties or cities, such as recreational and cultural programs, may be fee-based.
Elder abuse refers to any abuse, neglect, or exploitation of an adult age 60 or older. Abuse can be physical, psychological, or sexual in nature. Neglect involves the failure to provide vital services or items that prevent harm to an elderly person. Exploitation is the act of using an older adult's resources for the benefit of another.
Area Agencies on Aging were created by the Older Americans Act as part of the national network of service providers for the elderly. They are locally based organizations charged with helping vulnerable older adults live with independence in their homes and communities.
