Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, Inc.

We have almost 40 years experience administering and coordinating services for older adults.   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.

Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging needs  your assistance with completing a community assessment survey to aid in our Area Plan process.  We have to submit a 4 year area plan to the State Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services detailing what services and supports we will provide to our three county area and also those supports we will look at developing to meet the needs of current and future seniors in Jefferson, Shawnee, and Douglas Counties.  Please help us with this planning process by taking a few moments to complete this survey.  Community Needs Assessment
