Eastern Shore Area Agency on Aging/Community Action Agency
The Eastern Shore Area Agency on Aging is committed to serving the 60 and older population of Virginia's Eastern Shore. ESAAA focuses on the promotion of the maximum level of independence of persons 60 and older. The agency also works to ensure that older ESVA residents live as an integral part of society with dignity by providing access to the services and programs needed to make a healthier and more fulfilled life possible.
Through the Federal Older Americans Act, a network of over 670 Area Agencies of Aging exist in the US with the goal of improving the quality of life for older Americans. ESAAA is proud to manage and promote the following programs and services aimed at helping reach those goals:
