This is the official home page for the Great AAAsk — brought to you by The Connecticut Area Agencies on Aging (AAA). We’ve all got questions and you have the answers. This Great AAAsk, is a robust statewide survey which seeks to gain insights into the needs, concerns and priorities of caregivers and adults age 60 and older in Connecticut.
Please make your voice heard. Taking our survey, whether online, on the phone or in hard copy will enable us to ensure that Connecticut’s older population is accessing the support they need—and deserve.
Age-related challenges can take a toll on everyone, whether you’re personally coping with aging or caring for someone who is. This survey, being conducted statewide during Older Americans Month, will help this generation and all generations develop the proper resources and support for care that is convenient, and worry-free.
The Great AAAsk is hosted by a consortium of the five private, nonprofit Area Agencies on Aging in CT, including the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging, Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut, Senior Resources – Agency on Aging – Eastern Connecticut, North Central Area Agency on Aging, and Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging. These agencies administer federal and state funding to organizations that provide much-needed services for adults age 60 years and older, including social services, nutritional services, disease prevention and healthy living, family and caregiver support, and adult day care.
