2008 Older Americans Month Program Champions

The U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) is pleased to present the 2008 Older Americans Month Program Champions. The 2008 Program Champions highlight programs and initiatives in States and communities that demonstrate the principles of the Administration on Aging’s efforts to modernize community-based long term care and provide greater assurance that older people in the U.S. will maintain their independence in the community longer than ever before.

A new 2008 Program Champion will be featured on the AoA website each business day during Older Americans Month through July 2008. The 2008 Program Champions highlighted demonstrate streamlined access to information and services, evidence-based prevention and wellness projects, and consumer-directed service programs that help seniors avoid unnecessary placement in nursing home facilities. They also highlight innovative programs that assist older people before, during and after natural or man-made disasters.

Congratulations to all 2008 Program Champions.
