State takes look at aging

LGBTQ recommendations submitted to PA Department of Aging


The Pennsylvania Department of Aging (PDA) is working on their four-year strategic plan for the Commonwealth. This contains broad strategic goals for the department and includes recommendations for not only the general aging population, but also targeted marginalized populations. For the first time, the LGBTQIA+ community is one of those targeted populations. The Aging Committee for the PA Commission on LGBTQ Affairs has submitted recommendations gathered from an input survey to be included in the strategic plan. There will be virtual listening meetings (most likely via Zoom) conducted by the PDA later in the summer, and one of these meetings is expected to be specifically for LGBTQ seniors. We will hopefully have a date for that meeting very soon, and we need everyone to engage their network to have as diverse and strong participation as possible in the online meeting. Look for more details soon and be prepared to spread the word.
