Council on Aging's 2015 Annual Report

Council on Aging’s 2015 Annual Report includes data, photos and personal stories that highlight our changing role in long-term care services and supports. Through programs such as MyCare Ohio (the state’s new integrated care system for people enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid) and Care Transitions (a program to reduce re-hospitalizations), we are working to strengthen the connection between health care and long-term care.

As the Area Agency on Aging for Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties, Council on Aging is in our community every day, working with seniors, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. In 2015, COA:

  • Provided support to nearly 20,000 people to help them remain independent in their homes
  • Conducted Care Transitions InterventionsTM with more than 7,500 Medicare patients at risk for hospital readmission
  • Responded to 41,051 requests for information and referral to community resources
  • Contracted with 213 organizations to provide more than one million hours of home care services
  • Provided more than 1.5 million meals to seniors via congregate and home-delivered meals programs
  • Provided 309,864 transportation trips for medical and senior center activities

The report includes other highlights of 2015, such as our participation in the PBS documentary, Caring for Mom and Dad, along with photos and stories of several clients, such as 102-year-old Florence who says, “I love being alive!”

In addition to our organization annual report, we also produce annual reports for the Elderly Services Programs in Butler, Clinton, Hamilton, and Warren counties. These reports include client stories and photos along with detailed demographic and financial information, COA administers the program via contracts with county commissioners.
