Brief Description

The Ohio Department of Aging serves more than 2 million older Ohioans. We help mature adults live active, healthy and independent lives through programs like our well-known Golden Buckeye Card. We promote positive attitudes toward aging and older people through outreach, volunteer programs and other efforts. We also provide home and community-based services that help frail individuals remain in their own homes and support consumers of long-term care.

Hours of operation: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Number of staff: 90
Geographic area served: Ohio. Services coordinated on a local level by 12 Area Agencies on Aging.
