The Area Agency on Aging has launched a new program to help older adults and their caregivers explore options, formulate a plan and navigate systems with a goal to keep older adults in their homes for as long as possible.

AGEconnect focuses exclusively on the well-being of seniors through comprehensive assessments and customized care plans based on their individual, specific needs.

This private-pay enterprise “is a collaboration with family caregivers, whether they’re in Arizona or living in another state, to help manage current needs and to prepare for what might lie ahead,” said Area Agency on Aging president and CEO Mary Lynn Kasunic. “These services are important for both the older adults and those who love and care for them.”

AGEconnect provides a comprehensive in-home discussion about the individual’s current status and ongoing needs, a detailed plan based on those needs and ongoing follow up and support.

Any proceeds generated through AGEconnect are reinvested in services, resources and programs for seniors in need and their caregivers.
