The Office on Aging is the District of Columbia’s Agency on Aging that oversees direct services to persons 60 and older through a Senior Service Network. Within the Senior Service Network are eight community-based agencies, funded by the Office on Aging, to provide nutritious and tasty meals, social and recreational activities, as well as information on staying well. However, seniors are required to become registered participants in order to use the services. In-house, the Office on Aging operates two direct services programs: the Senior Employment and Training Program and the Information and Assistance Unit. The Office on Aging also oversees two nursing homes within the District. Other services provided through the community agencies include: Adult Day Care; Adult Education; Emergency Shelter; Health Insurance Counseling; In-Home Relief; Legal Services; and Transportation.
