"The Buckeye Hills Area Agency on Aging (AAA8) network of providers delivered more than $11.8 million dollars of services across the region last year," said AAA8 Director Rick Hindman. "They served more than 250,000 home-delivered and congregate meals and provided homemaker and caregiver services to meet the needs of our nearly 1,150 PASSPORT clients throughout the year." In 2009, AAA8 worked to formalize a cooperative for its rural health care providers - The Home Healthcare Provider Co-operative (HHPC).
