The Pennsylvania Department of Aging is in the process of developing its State Plan on Aging for 2020-2024. The State Plan acts as a blueprint for how the Department of Aging will meet its federally mandated responsibilities, respond to emergent issues, and lead the way in providing the best possible service, support and opportunities for a growing, diverse older population.
The following information is being collected by the Aging Workgroup of the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs in order to better advocate for the needs of LGBTQ older Pennsylvanians in the 2020-2024 State Plan.
To help us develop our recommendations for the State Plan, we need to hear from you! We need to hear both from providers who work with older adults as well as from LGBTQ individuals who receive services from the aging network. Your input will provide us with data that can be used to prioritize recommendations and to strengthen our case for how to best address the needs of LGBTQ older adults in the next State Plan on Aging.
The following link will direct you to a short anonymous survey. The 12-question survey includes questions for providers about the work taking place in your agencies and communities, as well as questions for LGBTQ individuals about your experiences and perceptions of the provider network.
