Adult Services and Aging

Mother and Son

The mission of the Division of Adult Services and Aging (ASA) is “To provide opportunities to enable older South Dakotans and adults who are disabled to live independent, meaningful, and dignified lives while maintaining close family and community ties by promoting in-home and community-based services to prevent or delay premature or inappropriate institutionalization.”

ASA provides home and community-based service options to individuals 60 years of age and older and 18 years of age and older with disabilities. In accordance with the Older Americans Act and other applicable state and federal laws, ASA provides or purchases services for South Dakotans who meet program eligibility.

Located in each Adult Services and Aging field office are Adult Services and Aging Specialists who provide information and referral services, needs assessments, ongoing case management, care plan development and adult protective services to consumers in their communities.
