As an Area Agency on Aging, the Hawaii County Office of Aging (HCOA) is responsible for assessing the needs of the county’s older adult population, determine the kinds and amounts of services required to meet those needs, monitor the provision of services, and evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of the various programs. In addition, HCOA participates in the development of the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) dedicated to the concept of a “one-stop shop/no wrong door ” for seniors and people with disabilities. Some of the programs at the East Hawaii site include Services for Seniors Case Management, Adult Protective Services, Aloha Independent Living, Coordinated Services for the Elderly, Senior Training and Employment Program, and the Hawaii County Nutrition Program. West Hawaii’s Office of Aging also has an ADRC component which is housed in West Hawaii Civic Center with other important senior services, like Coordinated Services for the Elderly. We look forward to hearing from you with your thoughts and suggestions as we strive to provide and promote high-quality services for seniors and people with disabilities.
