for the Caregiver, Aging, and Disabled

Sponsored by


A Message From the Publisher We are pleased to introduce the Resource DIRECTORY for the Caregiver, Aging, and Disabled to the residents of Chester County. With more than 400 listings, we have endeavored to provide a go-to source of information for those caring for a loved one, anyone who is or knows someone age 50+, and persons with disabilities. The Resource DIRECTORY is available wherever you are, whenever you need it, online at www.50plusSeniorNewsPA.com. And for the many people who prefer their information in print, we also publish the Resource DIRECTORY as a hard-copy edition. Chester County residents are fortunate to have an abundance of accessible organizations offering an excellent array of products, services, and programs that enhance life. Inside this edition you’ll find options for living communities, healthcare providers, legal counsel, food and nutrition benefits, home improvement, and so much more. There are many local, state, and federal programs available that can provide health and financial assistance. If you’re seeking more personal interaction, there are a variety of support groups where you’ll find encouragement and guidance, people who can relate to your circumstances, and professional advice. We thank the sponsor of the Resource DIRECTORY. Their financial support and commitment to their community has assisted us in producing this informational resource. Sincerely,

Donna K. Anderson, Publisher
