about us

With our main office located just ten miles from the state capitol, Agency on Aging \ Area 4 is one of thirty-three area agencies on aging (AAAs) in California. The “4” refers to Planning and Service Area 4 (PSA 4), which includes the seven counties of Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba. No other AAA in the state contains as many counties as Area 4.

How AAA4 is Different

Our Agency on Aging differs from many other AAAs in that it is a stand-alone joint powers authority with non-profit status. Consequently, AAA4 enjoys greater flexibility in operations, attracts a different type of employee and is viewed differently in the community. The agency’s joint powers status ties it directly to the county supervisors, adding strength and credibility and assuring accountability.

Our agency, and all 618 Area Agencies on Aging in the country, exist today because of the passage of the Older Americans Act (OAA) which was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson in 1965. The OAA created a national network to respond to the needs of Americans 60 and older in every local community. By providing a range of options to older adults, they may choose among home and community-based services and living arrangements that suits them best. AAAs make it possible for older adults to “age in place” in their home and communities.

Agency on Aging \ Area 4 was established in 1973; it was one of the six original agencies on aging in California. Ten years later the agency was restructured as a non-profit Joint Powers Authority (JPA).
