Institute on Aging - Elder Abuse Services

The Institute on Aging (IOA) is a community-based, non-profit organization that has helped thousands of Bay Area older adults to remain living in their own homes for over 25 years.

While devoting attention primarily to the later years of life, IOA is involved across the generations. We look wholly at each individual and the process of aging, in the context of family, partners, friends, culture, and community. Life is inter-connected and it is these relationships that make it meaningful. Therefore, IOA is dedicated to enabling all adults, as they age, to preserve their own living arrangements, involvements, and relationships, with sensitivity to the concerns of family and friends.

IOA’s Community Services offer guidance and services for seniors to increase independence, alleviate worries, and live life with dignity. Turn to IOA for information on care in the home or in the community, counseling for caregivers and seniors, financial planning, resources for professionals and students in the field of aging, and much more.
