With a grant from the Administration on Aging (AoA), the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) partnered with the Scripps Gerontology Center to conduct the 2012 Bridging the Aging Network and Medical Community Survey of all 627 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) in the nation.

The survey was designed to provide descriptive information about the connections between the Aging Network and the health care community. This research brief provides key findings from the survey for the 103 AAAs involved in care transitions from hospital to home.
