With more than 40 years’ experience as the designated Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for the six-county regionRegion 10 LEAP, Inc. plans and provides comprehensive services to address the needs of the region’s population of older adults and people living with disabilities. We are responsible for the establishment of a comprehensive, coordinated system of community-based supportive and nutrition services for the rural region’s older adults.

As required by the OAA, Region 10’s Area Plan on Aging is carried out through programs provided directly by the AAA and through contracts with community-based agencies to provide a continuum of services. The AAA has many options to help older adults 60+, their families, and caregivers remain independent in the community, including information and referral services, case management, transportation, home-delivered meals, senior centers, legal services and more through our network of funded providers.

We are also an Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC). and provide information and assistance as well as options counseling for both older adults and adults 18+ living with a disability. This program helps streamline access to long-term services and supports in the community.  Options counselors are available to offer personalized education and decision support around local resources for individuals and their caregivers.

With these findings and recommendations, we hope to help & serve the older adults in the communities of Region 10 by better understanding the scale needs and identifying opportunities to support an aging region.
