Pennsylvania State Plan on Aging
Every four years, the Department of Aging is required by both state and federal law to develop and submit to the Administration on Aging a “State Plan on Aging.” The plan is a mandate in order for the commonwealth to receive federal funds under the Older Americans Act. The purpose of the plan is:
- To help ensure that Pennsylvanians will age and live well and that communities will be designed to help them age and live well
- To move the discussion away from Institution vs Home and Community-Based Services and to refocus on access to the appropriate services and care for the right time, with the right intensity, in the right setting, for the right duration.
- To bring the best of Pennsylvania to Pennsylvanians
In November 2011, the Department began the planning process at the joint meeting of the Pennsylvania Council on Aging and the Pennsylvania Association of Area Agencies on Aging. At the meeting, breakout sessions addressed issues and topics relevant to Pennsylvania’s older population.
The 52 Area Agencies on Aging will also be developing local plans that will compliment the state’s plan. To contact your local Area Agency on Aging, click here
