Mission Statement

The Aging and Disability Services Division provides leadership and advocacy in the planning, development and delivery of a high quality, comprehensive support service system across the lifespan.

  • protecting themselves from Medicare fraud, waste and abuse;
  • learning how to live with chronic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure;
  • applying for low-income subsidy programs to pay for prescription drugs; and
