Senior Resources is the designated Area Agency on Aging in Eastern Connecticut and as such is responsible for distributing Title IIIB funds from the Older Americans Act to community-based agencies to provide services to individuals age 60 and older. Funds are allocated to encourage comprehensive and coordinated systems to serve older individuals to:
- Secure and maintain maximum independence and dignity in a home environment;
- Remove individual and social barriers to economic and personal independence;
- Provide a continuum of care for vulnerable older individuals, and
- Secure the opportunity for older individuals to receive managed in-home and community-based long-term care services.
Title IIID funds of the Older Americans Act for Evidence Based Health Promotion Programs are also available.
