Area Agency on Aging
There's nothing better than fresh summer produce! The 2015 Farmers Market Nutrition Program, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, provides eligible seniors with vouchers to purchase produce grown in Pennsylvania. The program provides four $5.00 vouchers to be used at participating Farmers Markets from June 1, 2015 until November 30, 2015. A list of participating Farmers Markets is available at the sign-up sites. Applicants must bring proof of age and residency. Learn more, incuding sign-up schedule and locations.
Managed Long Term Services & Supports
The Westmoreland County Area Agency on Aging wants you to know that the PA Department of Human Services (DHS), along with the PA Department of Aging, are in the process of initiating managed care for long-term services and supports, which means nursing home care.
This initiative will impact senior citizens and the disabilities community directly. It will also possibly impact in-home programs and Area Agency on Aging departments across the state. Public feedback is solicited through July 15. Learn more and share your thoughts with the Commonwealth.
