When most people hear the term “AAA”, they think of the American Automobile Association. But there is another AAA that older adults and their family members should know about.
When a person begins caring for an older parent, spouse, or other loved one, it can be overwhelming. One of the best first steps a caregiver can make is to learn as much as possible about local resources. While there are many types of free, insurance-eligible, and fee-based services available for caregivers and seniors, most caregivers don’t know where to begin their search. I always recommend that caregivers of older adults begin by contacting their local Area Agency on Aging.
