Key statements on ICT product and services accessibility: We are a national voice for older Americans and the community organizations that serve them. We bring together nonprofit organizations, businesses, and government to develop creative solutions that improve the lives of all older adults. We work with thousands of organizations across the country to help seniors find jobs and benefits, improve their health, live independently, and remain active in their communities.
Key areas of accessibility work:
• Improve the health of 4 million older adults with multiple serious health problems through participation in cost-effective evidence-based programs.
• Make self-care an integral part of U.S. health care for people with multiple chronic conditions.
• Improve the financial well-being of 5 million low-income and vulnerable older adults by providing comprehensive, integrated services that significantly increase their income and/or reduce their expenses.
• Strengthen and protect major public programs (especially Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and the Older Americans Act) for disadvantaged and vulnerable older adults.
