Area Agencies on Aging can help coordinate disaster assistance

October 29, 2012

HARRISBURG – Local Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) can coordinate shelter or find services for older Pennsylvanians during Hurricane Sandy.  Residents are encouraged to visit www.aging.state.pa.us or call 1-800-490-8505 to be connected with an AAA in their local area.
AAAs are the local representatives of the Pennsylvania Department of Aging. They carry out many programs such as:
Home-delivered meals; Family caregiver support; home services; Assistance for individuals with finding residential living and domiciliary care; and
Protective services.
In counties affected by power outages or flooding from the storm, the AAAs are prepared to handle the immediate and long-term needs of older adults and their families.
