Focus on Aging Adults
PCN has partnered with Pennsylvania AARP to bring you a monthly series of programs centered on issues important to our aging adult community. “Focus on Aging Adults” will feature a panel of experts on legislative policy and the individual issues that will be discussed.
AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of more than 37 million, that helps people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities and fights for the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare, employment security and retirement planning.
This month’s topic is the decision many seniors face concerning where they should live. Some decisions are based on income or medical needs, but many aging adults also consider what type of community they want to be a part of as they transition into a new stage of life.
