New Report Highlights Important Work of AAAs in Connecting Older Adults to Crucial Community Resources

The Eldercare Locator connects consumers to critical resources—like AAAs—that enable them to live for as long as possible in their homes and communities. 

In fact, according to Making Connections: Consumer Needs in an Aging America, a new analysis of calls made to the Eldercare Locator in 2016, 64 percent of all referrals the Eldercare Locator makes are to AAAs.
 
The report also shows that transportation and in-home services are at the top of the list of what older adults need to live comfortably in their homes. In 2016, the Eldercare Locator received an all-time high of more than 308,000 calls from older adults, their caregivers and their families.
