The Ohio Department of Aging

Welcome to the Ohio Department of Aging

The Ohio Department of Aging is a cabinet-level state agency that administers services and supports for older adults, their caregivers and their families. Our ultimate goal is to place Ohio on the leading edge of innovation and responsiveness to the growing and changing older population.

We believe that our elders should be respected as vital members of society who continue to grow, thrive and contribute throughout their lives. We also believe that state agencies and local communities must integrate aging needs into their plans and services. We work with and lead a network of agencies and service providers that help Ohioans maintain quality of life and independence by taking preventive measures and maintaining health throughout their lifespans. We also strive to ensure that aging Ohioans have access to an array of services and supports that are person-centered in policy and practice, and well-coordinated.
