The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Department of Aging believes in enhancing the quality of life of all older Pennsylvanians by empowering diverse communities, the family and the individual.
The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) is the leading voice on aging issues for Area Agencies on Aging and a champion for Title VI Native American aging programs. We advocate on behalf of our member agencies for services and resources for older adults and persons with disabilities. Action characterizes how we move our agenda forward, and when there is a question about aging, we have the Answers on Aging. We work with our members in achieving our collective mission of building a society that values and supports people as they age.
