ElderCare Locator API

ElderCare Locator
The service from the U.S. Administration on Aging provides lookup against a database of services available for seniors and aging Americans in locations nationwide. Applications can connect elderly users and their caregivers with listings of medical and social service providers, among other applicable support services. API methods support search for matches against a national database of senior services maintained by the U.S. Department of Heath and Human Services. Queries match against service descriptions and can be filtered by location specified as either city and state or Zip Code.

The summary section of this API is a little off. The API does not use HTTP basic authentication. Instead, you must use your username and password to get a token which lasts 8 hours. With that token, you can query by state or zipcode.
