Legal Basics: Older Americans Act Services and the HCBS Network

When: Monday, December 9, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

The Older Americans Act (OAA) provides an important foundation for the nation’s home and community-based services network. OAA-supported services include legal assistance, caregiver support, long-term care ombudsman assistance, and services to prevent the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older adults. Legal services programs can benefit from a clear understanding of the network of OAA-supported services, and the organizations involved in providing these valuable services.

This Legal Basics webcast will provide participants with a detailed understanding of the OAA’s history, the law’s guidance regarding funding and coordination of the aging network, and the collaboration between OAA legal services and the home and community-based services network.
