"I wanted to tell you how amazing Christine was in managing my parents with no power. She did a great job and packed them up so we were able to walk them down three flights of stairs in the dark, so that we could move them to my house this morning for a few days. Elaine also was terrific in getting there this am, and walking up the steps with her luggage with no help. We are so grateful for their amazing care and devotion to my parents! Thank you!"
Amada Senior Care Northern New Jersey operator Gerri Dasappan is uniquely qualified to provide the highest quality of senior care, as she is both a registered nurse and someone who has personally benefited from in-home care. When Gerri’s father was in the final days of his fight with cancer, the support and assistance provided by caregivers in their home allowed her family simply to focus on spending time with him. She says, “Having the right home-care people come in and help my mother with my dad was a big help for all of us. It gave us peace of mind. And this is the kind of care that I want to provide for all of our clients.”

In 1973, an amendment to the federal Older Americans Act (OAA) required states to separate their aging planning and service areas and to designate Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) to implement programs and services for older Americans at the local level. The local Area Agencies on Aging offices serve certain counties and implement the elder service programs within their geographic boundaries. The quickest way to find out what services a senior may qualify for and what senior programs are available is to contact the Area Agency on Aging office serving the county where the senior lives. A few states have websites which provide information for the entire state and other states provide a county lookup on their website to find the correct area office to contact for senior services.
