ESAAA - Eastern Sierra Area Agency on Aging
The California Department of Aging (CDA) administers programs that serve older adults, adults with disabilities, family caregivers, and residents in long-term care facilities throughout the State. The Department administers funds allocated under the federal Older Americans Act and the Older Californians Act.
CDA contracts with the network of Area Agencies on Aging, who directly manage a wide array of federal and state-funded services that help older adults to live as independently as possible in the community; promote healthy aging and community involvement; and assist family members in their vital care giving role. The Area Agency on Aging in our region is ESAAA, which encompasses both Inyo and Mono counties. ESAAA is governed by the Inyo County Board of Supervisors (BOS), who has designated the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to administer the ESAAA services. HHS oversees a contract with the County of Mono through which Mono County employees serve Mono County seniors. In Inyo County, HHS staff directly serve Inyo County seniors.
