Resource Directory

A Message from the Board of Commissioners Dear Friends: We are pleased to present to you the 2021 Dauphin County Resource Directory, a comprehensive handbook for services and opportunities available to adults 50 and over, caregivers, and persons with disabilities. We understand everyone has been impacted in a variety of ways by the COVID-19 pandemic, and those impacts have altered lifestyles and behaviors and limited access to friends and family. That can be a very difficult reality to become accustomed to. Perhaps more than ever, this handbook can be a reliable tool and resource for you. With information about adult daycare and home care services to volunteer opportunities and Medicare, this the comprehensive guide provides you a host of resources that can help improve your quality of life. Dauphin County’s Area Agency on Aging also offers a variety of resources and programs for adults age 60 and over, including one-on-one counseling services for Medicare enrollment, farmers market food vouchers, elder-abuse protection and investigation, and more. For more information about these programs, call the agency at (717) 780-6130 or visit www.DauphinCounty.org. In addition to these services, On-Line Publishers will host its 22nd annual 50plus EXPO in Dauphin County on June 19 at the Hershey Lodge. It’s another great opportunity to learn about programs in our area and to speak directly with service providers. Visit www.50plusexpopa.com or call (717) 285-1350 for more information. As we all continue on paths shifted by the ongoing pandemic, we want to help you live life healthily and to the fullest. We are hopeful this guide brings you assistance in that journey. Very truly yours,

Jeff Haste Chairman

Mike Pries Vice Chairman

George P. Hartwick III Secretary
