The Vision Avoid or reduce premature institutionalization of the frail elderly by the development and provision of a community-based system of long term care.
The Mission Protecting, assisting and advocating for individuals by coordinating community based services to maintain their independence at home; and protecting the assets and managing the estates of those who have passed away.
This mission effort is carried out through the activities of an AAA Director/Public Administrator, AAA Department Fiscal Manager, AAA Advisory Council, and through policy direction confirmed by the Imperial County Board of Supervisors. AAA providers are retained under contract to deliver services in accordance with our goals. Developing this system referred to above, involves planning and advocacy by these same parties including participation by private citizens and other human service organizations. The AAA’s are charged with the mission in the official California Department of Aging directive above. This is the core work of the AAA system statewide.
