Giving online is safe, fast and convenient through our website, www.areawideaging.org. Areawide Aging Agency is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit agency, making your gift tax-deductible.
Anyone over the age of 60 is eligible for our services; however, those living below the poverty line are the ones who depend upon it to help make ends meet. Our services provide them with a noon meal, transportation to the doctor’s office, and better balance classes with tai chi. Seniors can also receive legal services to complete a will or end of life documents.
Areawide’s helpline provides assistance with utility bills or for the construction of a wheelchair ramp for their home. Our information assistants answer calls from over 11,000 people a year. They direct seniors to more specific agencies that can help them, or we may send them a Survival Information Directory. This resource directory contains information for a range of needs, from dentistry to hearing and visual services, to long-term care facilities, and even pet care. In the summer, we have fans available for seniors, and in the winter, we have warm blankets. We try to be a one stop shop for many things our fellow senior Oklahomans may need.
Areawide Aging Agency also has an Ombudsman program. The Ombudsman serve residents in nursing homes, resident care facilities and assisted living centers in the four counties served by Areawide Aging Agency. Five Ombudsman serve 10, 850 residents at these facilities. The Ombudsman’s work is to improve the quality of care and life, and assist in protecting residents’ rights in these facilities.
