AGING (CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF)


The California Department of Aging (CDA) administers programs that serve older adults, adults with disabilities, family caregivers and residents in long-term care facilities throughout the state.


The Department administers funds allocated under the federal Older Americans Act, the Older Californians Act and through the Medi-Cal Program.


The Department's mission is to promote the independence and well-being of older adults, adults with disabilities and families through:

  • Access to information and services to improve the quality of their lives;
  • Opportunities for community involvement; and
  • Support from family members providing care.</p>


The Department is also the designated "State Unit on Aging," fulfilling the goals of the federal Older Americans Act. Also, the California Legislature has authorized the department to provide additional services to senior through the companion Older Californians Act. CDA administers a broad range of programs, working primarily with 33 local Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), which serve seniors in specific geographic areas of the state. These AAA use federal, state and local funds to contract with local organizations to provide services. The department also works with other public and private non-profit agencies throughout California.
