LeadingAge Ohio At-A-Glance
In 2011, AOPHA became LeadingAge Ohio, reflecting the role of the association and its members in being at the forefront of innovation in providing quality housing and health care services for Ohio’s older and disabled population. Following suit with LeadingAge, our national affiliate, and state affiliates around the country, we adopted a common name that better shares our ties and commitment to continually improving the quality of care for those our members serve, helping each to live a more fulfilling life.
LeadingAge Ohio is a nonprofit organization that represents approximately 400 nonprofit long-term care organizations located in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities, as well as those providing ancillary health care and housing services. Member organizations serve more than 400,000 elderly Ohioans daily and employ more than 35,000 persons statewide.
Not-for-profit providers of senior services include senior housing, both subsidized and market rate, adult day care, home- and community-based services, assisted living and skilled nursing. A majority of members are faith-based and provide many or all of these services.
LeadingAge Ohio is a member-driven organization, with leadership elected by peers from around the state. The leadership team is composed of the Board of Directors, including executive committee officers; regional directors, responsible for organizing in-district member meetings; and delegates, who represent LeadingAge Ohio at our national organization. Strategic committees, action councils and special interest groups comprised of members from around the state help to develop and oversee governing policies and positions.
OUR VISION: Empower not-for-profit Ohio organizations to optimize choices for successful aging.
OUR MISSION: to ensure the success of not-for-profit providers serving frail and older adults.
