Join us for our
Virtual Community Conversation
on the State Plan on Aging

 
On Tuesday, July 7 from noon to 1:30 p.m., the Department of Aging will host a Virtual Community Conversation to discuss our State Plan on Aging for 2020-2024, and we invite feedback from the public and community stakeholders across the commonwealth.

People interested in participating can be an observer only or can make comments for up to two minutes on aging issues that are important to them. Individuals can also submit questions on aging-related topics to the department in advance and have them answered during the conversation by registering online.

You must register through a special link created by the Pennsylvania Association of Area Agencies on Aging to participate via WebEx. If you choose to participate by phone, you must still register through the link to obtain your attendee ID.
 
The State Plan on Aging is designed to help Pennsylvania meet the objectives of the Older Americans Act and will be submitted to the Administration for Community Living (ACL) containing a vision and direction for Pennsylvania’s network of aging services. We are required to submit a plan every four years, with the next plan due by Oct. 1, 2020.

We are so thankful for Alicia Hughes, Director at American Express and Danilo(Danny) and Kathy Angelucci who own Anthony’s Cucina Fresca located in downtown Downingtown at 78 W Lancaster Avenue Downingtown, PA 19335. Danny and Kathy did not hesitate to help out and offer to discount meals for the seniors of DASC during these trying times. Alicia Hughes, who moved to Downing-town over six years ago from Ohio for a career promotion wanted to be able to give back to those greatly impacted by COVID-19. She got together with Anthony’s and donated the cost of the dis-counted meals for DASC low income seniors and they received a delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner delivered to their home by the staff at DASC and Bill Fagan, Board President. Also, The Chester County Food Bank delivered fresh produce for all seniors and the staff got to see everyone via a curb side pick up on Tuesday. Thank you Alicia, Danny, Kathy and the Food Bank for all you do. Everyone please stay safe, and be healthy. We are all in this together!
