Recognizing Excellence

We celebrate and amplify progress of those that advance high-quality, coordinated services for older adults with complex needs so that individuals, families, and communities can thrive.

Innovation Award

Our 2021 Innovation Award recognizes organizations that embrace the principles of human-centered design to build and/or modify a product, program, or service that improves the lives of older adults in California.

Pacesetter Prize

Every three years, aligning with the AARP Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) State Scorecard, we honor states making significant progress in improving LTSS for older adults, people with disabilities, and family caregivers.

In 2020, we recognize four leading states: Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio.
