He envisioned the program as an advocacy program for residents. The Older Americans Act (OAA). The OAA of 1965 created a National Aging Network comprised of federal, state, and local supports and services for individuals ages 60 and older. In addition to providing comprehensive services for older adults, the OAA established the LTCOP. OAA Title VII, Chapter 2, Sections 711/712 pertains to the LTCOP.
