Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, Inc.

We have more than 30 years experience administering and coordinating services for older adults. And, as the population has changed over time - with people living longer but facing chronic illness and frailty – JAAA services have evolved to meet these new and more challenging needs. JAAA strives to maximize service potential and avoid duplication of effort, while also collaborating with other groups to sponsor events of interest to older adults and their caregivers. The mission of JAAA - to make it easier for older persons to live independently in the comfort of their own surroundings - is not only cost effective, is the preferred choice for hundreds of older adults in Shawnee, Jefferson and Douglas Counties.
