Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging to Host Listening Session on Pennsylvania’s Master Plan for Older Adults
The Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) will host listening sessions on the Department of Aging’s development of the Master Plan for Older Adults – a 10-year, state-led and stakeholder-driven strategic plan designed to help transform the infrastructure and coordination of services for older Pennsylvanians. The master plan will also reflect the needs and preferences of this population to live where they choose and access the supports they need to thrive and age in place.
The listening sessions will take place at:
North Pocono Public Library - Thursday, September 7th at 5 PM
Fallbrook Senior Community Center - Wednesday, September 13th at 10 AM
MyCIL - Thursday, September 14th at 11 AM
Abington Community Library - Wednesday, September 27th at 1 PM
Stakeholders, older adults and people living with disabilities, their families, caregivers and community leaders are invited to hear an overview of the plan, its core principles, and why such a plan is needed for Pennsylvania. There will be opportunities for those in attendance to provide comments and input on the plan.
Those interested in attending the listening sessions should RSVP by calling
570-963-6710 ext. 1450.
Individuals who are unable to attend can still provide input on the plan. They can can either email AgingPlan@pa.gov, provide feedback through an online form, or mail the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, c/o Master Plan, 555 Walnut St., 5th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101.
