A Message From the Publisher Whether you’re searching for help for yourself or navigating the role of caregiver for someone who is aging or disabled, the path toward locating needed assistance often feels more like an overwhelming maze. From insurance and healthcare to support groups and advocacy services, you’re sure there are professional resources available—but you’re not sure where to start looking. That maze begins to thicken and loom. The Berks County Resource DIRECTORY for the Caregiver, Aging, and Disabled is here to clear the way. An extensive source of local, regional, and national information, the Resource DIRECTORY connects you to an abundance of organizations, businesses, and services for Berks Countians who are over age 50, who are caring for a loved one, or who have disabilities. Within its hundreds of easy-to-read listings, you’ll find options for housing, physicians, veterans’ services, legal counsel, advocacy, home improvement, and more. Plus, we include contact information for Berks County police departments, post offices, and emergency services, as well as county, state, and federal government phone numbers for your convenience. The Resource DIRECTORY is available in print and online at www.50plusLifePA.com, so it’s accessible whenever and wherever you need it. The Berks County Resource DIRECTORY for the Caregiver, Aging, and Disabled would not be possible without the financial support and community dedication of its sponsors and advertisers. We thank them for helping us “simplify the maze” so that people across Berks County can access the resources that can improve their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Sincerely,

Donna K. Anderson, Publisher
