Everyone has the right to receive the care they need in the settings they prefer. The Area Agency on Aging assists nine East Central Ohio counties understand their options for care and ensures your rights as a consumer are not infringed. Most older people remain independent their entire lives, but others find themselves needing some help with activities we once took for granted, such as fixing meals and traveling to appointments. There comes a time when we need a level of care that we just can't provide for ourselves. We offer many different options in a variety of settings, from linking you to care in your home to assisting you in nursing facility placement.
The Department of Aging is gathering information about how suspicions and allegations of elder fraud and financial exploitation are identified and handled in Ohio via an online survey. When someone suspects or identifies potential elder fraud or financial exploitation, they frequently are confronted with a maze of organizations and bureaucratic requirements. This often comes at a time of vulnerability or crisis that can result in people making decisions based on incomplete and sometimes inaccurate information about their options. To learn more about the current state and identify necessary improvements, we are conducting an online survey.

The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and will close on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. Thank you.
