Blair Senior Services, Inc., Blair County’s Area Agency on Aging (AAA), will host a listening session 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 session will take place at the Southern Blair Senior Center, located at 15229 Dunnings Highway in East Freedom, on Tuesday, August 22 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
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 session should RSVP by calling 814-946-1235.
Individuals who are unable to attend can still provide input on the plan via email to AgingPlan@pa.gov, through our online survey at Public Comment on the Pennsylvania Master Plan for Older Adults (office.com), or via mail to the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, c/o Master Plan, 555 Walnut St., 5th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101.
