    Our Mission

    The mission of the Administration on Aging (AoA) is to help elderly individuals maintain their dignity and independence in their homes and communities through comprehensive, coordinated, and cost effective systems of long-term care, and livable communities across the U.S.

    Our Vision for Older People

    Our vision for older people is embodied in the Older Americans Act and is based on the American value that dignity is inherent to all individuals in our democratic society, and the belief that older people should have the opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of society and community life, be able to maintain their health and independence, and remain in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.

    Tardive Dyskinesia

    A movement disorder caused by prescription medications that can potentially be confused with Parkinson’s Disease.

    Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) is a result of damage to the bodily systems that process dopamine, and is typically caused by exposure to certain prescription medications – including Reglan and several antipsychotic medications. The symptoms of TD, which are irreversible and incurable, mimic those of Parkinson’s disease or Huntington’s disease. Tardive Dyskinesia victims suffer from involuntary, repetitive movements which often continue after the drug is no longer used.
