Our bureau was formed in response to rapid aging of the population here in Contra Costa County. The older population will continue to expand significantly in the coming years, with the greatest growth among those over age 85.
We provide vital services to older adults and to younger adults with disabilities, assisting them to live as independently as possible and helping them to avoid inappropriate institutional care. Through the General Assistance program, we also provide temporary assistance to individuals who are not eligible for federal or state-funded cash assistance.
Aging & Adult Services offers the following programs to the community:
- Adult Protective Services
- Advisory Council on Aging
- Area Agency on Aging
- General Assistance
- Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP)
- Information & Assistance
- In-Home Supportive Services
We work in partnership with consumer advocates, community organizations and community leaders to develop and support a community-based system of care here in Contra Costa County.
