Idaho's services for seniors are designed to provide care, ensure safety, and promote individual independence, dignity and choices for Idaho's older adults.

Idaho Commission on Aging

The Idaho Commission on Aging works to provide services that improve the quality of life for seniors and people with disabilities so they can live independent, meaningful and dignified lives within the community of their choice.

This agency provides solutions for seniors, people with disabilities and caregivers aimed at securing safe, healthy, community-supported and independent living options through comprehensive information, assistance, advocacy, and planning efforts.
