Due to these unprecedented and challenging times, the Pa Council on Aging has decided to conduct a statewide survey in order to assess what the immediate needs and capabilities are of older adults due to COVID-19. Our goal is to collect and share this information in order to:

  • Better understand the immediate needs of older Pennsylvanians
  • Determine how to best reach older adults during this time
  • Assess the particular vulnerabilities of older adults during this pandemic
  • Create meaningful solutions to the current challenges facing older adults

 The survey can be filled out here:

 The survey will be open until Tuesday, April 7th. It is for adults aged 60 and over in Pennsylvania. Those are the only requirements to be eligible to fill out the survey.

The Pennsylvania Council on Aging is a cohort of volunteers who work on behalf of older adults across the commonwealth. Established in 1977, we are required, among other things, “to prepare and submit to the Governor, the General Assembly, the Secretary of the Department of Aging and the public reports evaluating the level and quality of services and programs provided to the aging by Commonwealth agencies together with recommendations for improved, expanded or additional programs and services for the aging.”
