Louisiana Councils On Aging

The History and Mission

 Our History . . .

    In 1965, the Congress passed the Older Americans Act (OAA) to affirm the nation's highest sense of commitment to the well being of older persons. In 1973, amendments to the Older Americans Act required State and Area Agencies on Aging to develop and maintain information and referral services within "reasonably convenient access to all older Americans."

      As a result of this legislation, parishes throughout Louisiana began forming  Councils on Aging to provide services to the citizens of their area.  Louisiana's Councils On Aging are dedicated to improving the lives of our elderly population by providing information and assistance in a variety of areas.  Each council serves the citizens of their area in many ways.  Contact your local council to find out more about what specific services they provide. 

Our Mission . . .

"The mission of the Louisiana Councils On Aging is to assure Louisiana citizens the ability to age with dignity and independence in the manner of their choice."
