They are held to strict standards of service from the Department of Elder Affairs and the local Area Agency on Aging.

Lead Agencies coordinate services in their designated county (or counties).  They provide elder and disability services  for medically frail older adults and people with disabilities who have functional impairments. Services can be provided either directly or through subcontracts.
