The Pennsylvania Department of Aging provides valuable
resources and information regarding COVID-19 for older adults
The safety and well-being of Pennsylvania’s older adults and their families and caregivers
are the Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s top priorities. To keep you updated during COVID-19,
we have developed a list of resources and updates to programs and services that we provide.
National Adult Day Service Week
September 20-26, 2020
This special week has been celebrated annually since it was proclaimed on September 27, 1983, by former
President Ronald Reagan. The third complete week of September is set aside to raise awareness of the availability and
accessibility of Adult Day Programs nationwide. This year, more than ever, take this opportunity to showcase the
amazing programs and services we provide our participants, their families, and our communities!
Creative VIRTUAL methods of Celebration for 2020 include launching and utilizing social media platforms,
highlighting how your center makes a difference every day, Tweeting your activities, putting phots on Instagram of
your staff in action, sharing testimonials from service recipients and their families about your center.
You can also share History about our industry, and Adult Day Services.
Here are some more ideas from NADSA.
UPDATE FROM THE PADSA BOARD
Our PADSA Board has been working hard to advocate for you in this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
PASDA Board members are providers who work for large organizations and small businesses, just like you.
We all feel the effects of this mandatory closure on our businesses, and we all feel the heartbreak
knowing our participants may not be getting the support and services they need and want.
We have been on countless calls with decision makers in Harrisburg, as well as Managed Care Organizations,
and other agencies to advocate for the amazing services we provide and the people we support.
On Friday, April 3, 2020 we submitted a proposal to the state to secure retainer payments for our programs.
At this time, you can continue to support PADSA by:
Reaching out to us directly if you have questions.
Reading your emails from us, which may have information about important calls or next steps.
Reaching out if you are interested in being a member of the Board!
