The Chester County Department of Aging Services will host listening sessions on the Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s development of the Master Plan for Older Adults. This 10-year, state-led, stakeholder-driven strategic plan is 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.
Stakeholders, older adults, people living with disabilities, 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, as well as to give input on the plan.
The listening sessions will take place on:
- Wednesday, August 30, 10:00 a.m., Brandywine Valley Active Aging, 250 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Coatesville (in-person)
- Monday, September 11, 10:00 a.m., Government Services Center, 601 Westtown Road, West Chester (virtual and in-person)
- Thursday, September 14, 10:00 a.m., Kennett Area Senior Center, 427 S. Walnut Street, Kennett Square (in-person)
