PA Seeking Input for State’s Aging Plan

Share this Article


During the next three months, the Pennsylvania Department of Aging will conduct seven town meetings to gather input for the state’s next four-year Plan on Aging. The resulting state- and federally-mandated plan will guide the state’s aging agenda from October 1, 2008 through

September 30, 2012.

The Department is seeking public participation to help develop new services and enhance existing programs for older Pennsylvanians. Issues to be addressed include public awareness of health care and long-term living options; enabling individuals to live in the setting of their choice; empowering individuals to stay active and healthy; and ensuring the rights of individuals to prevent abuse, neglect, exploitation and abandonment.
