CAAA's Mission

The CENLA Area Agency on Aging develops and oversees a network of community-based services for seniors and their caregivers to enable seniors to continue to live in their chosen communities for as long as possible.

We contract Older Americans Act resources to local agencies to provide access to a variety of services to solve problems that seniors may be having. These services include assistance in house maintenance and cleaning; caregiver and sitter resources; legal assistance; personal care; transportation, congregate and home-delivered meals, and wellness.

If you or a senior that you know is in need of help, please contact us and we will provide the resources to help answer your problem.
