What is the AEA?

The County of Kauai Agency on Elderly Affairs (AEA), with the Mayor as Chief Executive, is your local Area Agency on Aging. Its purpose is to plan, support, and advocate for programs to promote the well-being of Kauai's older adults and to address and respond to the priority needs of all seniors.

Priority is given to seniors 60 years old who are in the greatest financial and social need. Seniors and their families have the opportunity to make a contribution towards the services they receive, thus helping to maintain and expand services within each program. These services are provided with funding by County, State and Federal governments. Services include: Information and Referral, Case Management, Senior Transportation, Adult Day Care, Homemaker Services, Personal Care, Respite, Elderly Nutrition Services, Volunteer Program, Home Service Registry, Legal Assistance Services and Caregiver Counseling.

Senior Survey - Wednesday, August 8, 2018

The County of Kaua’i Agency on Elderly Affairs is in the process of developing its 4-year Area Plan on Aging for 2019-2023.  The Area Plan serves as a planning and compliance document that enables the County of Kaua’i to receive federal funds under the Older Americans Act, through the Administration on Community Living and the State Executive Office on Aging.

The Agency is currently conducting a survey to determine the current needs of seniors and identify unmet needs in the community. 

If you are a resident 60 years and better, the Agency would greatly appreciate you taking a few moments to complete the Senior Survey by August 31, 2018.  Please click on the link high lighted in yellow on the left-side of this page.
