Area Agency on Aging
About UsThe 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.

The AAA is looking for opportunities to coordinate Matter of Balance Classes for seniors in all areas of Monterey County. This nationally recognized and award winning program is designed to help seniors manage concerns about falling. Certainly falling is the #1 reason why seniors go to hospital emergency rooms but staying home is not the answer. There is a BETTER WAY where seniors do not have to limit their activities and includes a simple exercise routine designed to increase flexibility, strength, and endurance.
Call (831) 796-3530 if you are interested in hosting or attending a class!
