About Us

The Monterey County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is part of a nationwide network of services designed to assist low-income residents as they age. Every local AAA determines the priorities in their area and then decides how to use limited resources to meets those needs. As a result, there can be big differences in AAAs across California and the United States.

The mission of the Monterey County AAA is to provide leadership in addressing issues that relate to older Monterey County residents; to develop community-based systems of care that provide services which support independence, and which protect the quality of life of older persons and persons with functional impairments; and to promote citizen involvement in the planning and delivery of services.
