TELL CONGRESS HOW IMPORTANT THE OLDER AMERICANS ACT IS TO YOU
The federal Older Americans Act (OAA) authorizes critical services for older adults and their caregivers, such as: home-delivered meals (meals-on-wheels), long term care ombudsman, elder abuse prevention, non-emergency medical transportation, legal assistance, adult day care, evidence-based wellness and other important programs.
The Senior Alliance advocates for the continuation and strengthening of these programs and services alongside our partners in Washington, D.C. to ensure federal lawmakers understand how important the OAA is to their constituents. However, we need YOU to help make our voice stronger by telling members of Congress how these vital OAA services help older adults and caregivers in our community.
Call, e-mail or write U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, as well as your U.S. Representative today! Share a story of how one or more of these programs has impacted you or someone you know! It’s critical that all members of Congress understand how critical OAA funding is to older adults and caregivers. Use the Find Your Legislators page for contact information.
