Advocacy, Programs for Older and Disabled Adults 

aaa_og.jpgWith the oversight of a community Advisory Council, the Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) makes recommendations to the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors regarding the needs of older and disabled adults and their caregivers.

In response to those needs, AAA also supports helpful programs and services, including:

Adult and Aging Lobby Closed:
Other Options for Services

The County of Sonoma has transitioned to a temporary and precautionary suspension of non-essential operations until April 3, 2020, in an effort to protect employees and the community by limiting person-to-person contact to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

While most of the Human Services’ offices are temporarily closed, we will continue to provide essential services, including emergency services for adult protective services, IHSS, Medi-Cal and Public Administrator / Public Guardian / Public Conservator. 

For additional information, please email info@schsd.org or call 707-565-5900. You can also call the Adult and Aging Information and Assistance line, (707) 565-INFO (4636), Monday-Friday. Your call will be returned within 48 hours. In English and Spanish.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to keep our communities safe.
