Southwest Idaho Area Agency on Aging provides access to federal and state funded services for older residents and family caregivers living in SW Idaho. We administer federal Older Americans Act funding, partnering with community-based organizations to provide congregate meal services, caregiver support, elder abuse prevention, health promotion, information and assistance, legal support, nutrition, senior centers, and transportation services. These services are listed below.
The Information and Assistance Program is the main entry point to services within each Area Agency on Aging.
In the six weekly classes, caregivers develop a wealth of self-care tools.
Congregate meal sites are places like senior centers where lunch is served on weekdays to individuals age 60 or older.
Adult Protective Services programs provide for the safety and protection of vulnerable adults that are, or are suspected to be, victims of abuse, neglect, self-neglect or exploitation.
The Southwest Idaho Area Agency on Aging is one of six Area Agencies in Idaho. SWIA3 is part of a nationwide aging network created through the Older Americans Act. Our funding is provided by the Idaho Commission on Aging to identify and serve seniors at most risk of nursing home placement. Our focus is to help provide information, resources, and support to those living in SW Idaho. “The Older Americans Act clearly affirms our Nation’s sense of responsibility toward the well-being of all of our older citizens.” –President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1965
