Why aren't the Area Agency on Aging being utilized? There is an office in every county

in the country and are the coordinators for Meals on Wheels, getting Elders to their medical appointments and document Elder Abuse. They are highly trusted by Elders in rural areas and are a known entity and, more importantly, trusted. RN's and LPN's work at the offices, along with Ombudsman's.

Why is everyone trying to reinvent the wheel when the tools are already laid out.

1. Good idea, but not every elderly gets Meals on Wheels,

but it possibly could be part of the framework.

2. Good question, I would think they would be. As far as I know the shots have been given

in your car at the county fair grounds. If you live at home and don't have transportation or are unable
to get to the fair grounds I don't know what they do. There is that one location and it is a 20 mile drive
one way for some people. I hear people over 70 can get them next week but haven't been notified yet.
