About Institute on Aging

Institute on Aging (IOA) is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that has helped thousands of Bay Area seniors to remain living in their own homes for over 20 years. IOA offers guidance and a variety of resources to seniors and disabled adults from assessment to healthcare to bookkeeping. Services are provided in day centers, in our offices, and in the home.

The Alzheimer's Day Care Resource Center (ADCRC) operates as a part of the Adult Day Health Center and offers healthcare and social activities to people with moderate to severe memory loss while providing respite for their caregivers. Specialized activities and an experienced staff promote mental stimulation, socialization and personal successes in a comfortable and supportive environment. The ADCRC is also a resource for the community offering caregiver support groups, information about local dementia services, and trainings for both professionals and families.

To date, StoryCorps has recorded more than 23,000 audio interviews with over 40,000 participants. Excerpts of select stories are broadcast weekly on NPR's Mor
