Author: Richard Dale Roth

SB 1249, as amended, Roth. Mello-Granlund Older Californians Act. Existing law, the Mello-Granlund Older Californians Act, establishes the California Department of Aging in the California Health and Human Services Agency and sets forth its mission to provide leadership to the area agencies on aging in developing systems of home- and community-based services that maintain individuals in their own homes or the least restrictive homelike environments. Existing law requires the department to designate various private nonprofit or public agencies as area agencies on aging to work within a planning and service area and provide a broad array of social and nutritional services. Existing law includes various findings and declarations relating to the purposes of the act.This bill would update and revise those legislative findings and declarations, including recognizing the state’s major demographic shift towards an older, more diverse population and declaring the intent to reform provisions of the act related to various functions of the area agencies on aging. The bill would require the department, by September 30, 2026, to take various actions, including, among others, identifying older adult and family caregiver support programs and services and developing a statewide consumer engagement plan. The bill would require the department to develop regulations that address specified topics relating to area agency on aging designations and to maintain the Data Dashboard for Aging, as specified.
