Are you or do you know someone age 55 or older that lives in Lackawanna County? Our grantee wants to hear from this group!
Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging hopes to gain insight through a community outreach survey that will be conducted by the Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development, a Wilkes-Barre-based think tank, to conduct separate surveys targeting three key demographics: senior citizens ages 65 and up, future seniors between ages 55 and 64, and nonprofessional caregivers who provide care for a senior family member, neighbor or friend. “As a county, we are invested in the well-being of our older adults. ... We’re really interested in what they think we should be offering to them in terms of services and activities and resources,” agency Director Jason Kavulich commented.
