News & Notes

Connections Area Agency on Aging, Inc. is currently accepting applications for our FY 2023 Purchase of Service Program.  Connections’ Purchase of Service Program is aimed at providing a choice for frail adults to receive needed services in the community.   The Purchase of Service Program, as a funder of last resort, will directly purchase needed services for consumers from a pool of competing providers with the choice of provider made by consumers.  

Connections Area Agency on Aging works every day to enhance the quality of life for elders in our service area through education, planning and coordination of services. We are excited to partner with Iowa Insurance Division and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office Consumer Protection Division to educate Older Iowans in Financial Wellness.

Sonya Sellmeyer, Iowa Insurance Division will share helpful insight regarding financial matters related specifically to women as women have different financial needs than men. Differences include earning and working less and often have less financial education support. No matter your financial status, age or stage in life, the importance of money management for women can’t be overlooked.

Investigator Al Perales of the Consumer Protection Division with the Iowa Attorney General’s Office will assist Iowans with consumer protection issues, including providing information on how to spot and protect themselves from fraud.  The Consumer Protection Division can answer consumer questions regarding identifying price gouging, hiring contractors, avoiding scams, and other issues, and can take consumer complaints.

Connections Area Agency on Aging, Inc. is currently soliciting proposals to provide services to the elderly and their caregivers. The Request for Proposals (RFP) being issued on May 2, 2022 is for those agencies who wish to contract with Connections AAA for any of the home and community-based services listed in the proposal for the specified counties. This RFP does not apply to those agencies that wish to have a purchase of service agreement with the agency in FY 2023. The notification on those agreements will be issued separately.

Proposals are due back into the Connections office by 5:00 pm on June 3, 2022.
