Council on Aging`s 2012 Annual Report highlights the role and impact of our organization in communities across southwestern Ohio. Through new and expanding partnerships, including Ohio`s new Integrated Care Delivery System (ICDS) and the Southwest Ohio Care Transitions Collaborative, we are working to strengthen the points where health care and long-term care connect. This new integrated model for care will be particularly important as our region undergoes a dramatic age transformation.

As the Area Agency on Aging for Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties, Council on Aging offers:

  • Independence for seniors: making it possible for thousands of frail seniors to remain in their homes.
  • Support for families: serving as our region`s "front door" to services and resources for caregivers and people who are elderly or have disabilities.
  • Resources for communities: helping elected officials and other community leaders plan and prepare for the aging of the population.
  • Savings for taxpayers: ensuring that taxpayers who fund in-home care programs are getting the highest quality services for the lowest possible cost. 

Highlights from COA`s 2012 annual report, include:

  • Clients receiving in-home services: 20,459
  • Hours of home care provided: 2.1 million
  • Number of home-delivered meals: nearly 2 million to 10,011 homebound older adults
  • Transportation for medical appointments and senior center activities: 280,047 trips
  • Calls for information about help for seniors: 29,322
  • Advocacy meetings and client visits with elected officials: 112

The report also highlights Council on Aging`s efforts to help people move from nursing homes to more independent home and community-based settings. COA has two Community Transitions Specialists working in our region`s 131 nursing facilities with the goal of helping individuals and families navigate the complicated process of transitioning from one care setting to another.
