Programs and Services

Lebanon County AAA coordinates all aging programs and services provided to the elderly of Lebanon County. The agency works to maximize individual functioning and optimal quality of life for all elderly with emphasis placed on the prevention of unnecessary and inappropriate institutionalization of older persons.


The Caregiver Support Program is designed to provide financial reimbursement to a caregiver for some of the costs the caregiver may incur for services and/or supplies purchased routinely for someone’s care at home. Grants of up to $5000 may be available to offset the costs of home modifications or assistive devices.

The Consumer Reimbursement Program is designed to provide financial reimbursement to eligible consumers who incur out-of-pocket costs for Personal Care services.
Eldercare is a community based program for adults which encourages independence and sup­ports older adults in remaining active and healthy in their daily life while remaining in their home. Socialization, meals and snacks, activities and other services provided in a safe and caring adult day care setting.
A comprehensive needs assessment to determine Level of Care for individuals seeking placement in a Nursing Facility, Assisted Living Facility or Personal Care home.
Trained staff will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints related to the health, safety or rights of older persons who live in licensed nursing homes, licensed personal care homes, certified domiciliary homes or private residences.

Lunches delivered to your door!
A home delivered meal program for seniors (60+) who are alone for all or most of the day, have a physical or cognitive disability that inhibits the ability to prepare meals, a lack of resources (money) to purchase meals, and an absence of someone able/willing to prepare or provide meals. This could be for long-term or short-term, as needed. Meals are delivered either daily or once every two weeks. The daily meal delivery also provides a check-in from our drivers to make sure the individual is safe.
