A Message From the Commissioner Welcome to the 2013 Dauphin County Resource DIRECTORY! Consider this guide to be your “go-to” publication for services and opportunities for adults age 50 and over, caregivers, and persons with disabilities in Dauphin County. Whether you’re in need of home care services, volunteer opportunities, consumer protection, or Medicare, you will find it here. It’s no secret that Dauphin County is home to world-class health care facilities, a host of community services, and recreational opportunities. There is no shortage of things to do and resources to help you. One such resource is On-Line Publishers’ 50plus EXPO, to be held on May 28 at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center. Visit www.50plusexpopa.com for more details. Another great resource, offered by Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging and Mid-Penn Legal Services, is Older & Wiser®—a series of free informative seminars on important topics such as living wills, health care facilities, and powers of attorney. Call the county’s Area Agency on Aging at 7(17) 780-6130 or visit www.DauphinCounty.org for details. By connecting you to the services you or a loved one may need, we hope to improve the quality of life in the region. Nothing is more important to our quality of life than the fostering of safe and healthy families and communities.

George Hartwick III has served as a Dauphin County Commissioner since 2003. He has oversight of the county’s Human Services Department, including Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging, and is the Statewide Policy Chair for Human Services for the County Commissioners Association of PA.

A Message From the Publisher

We are pleased to introduce the Resource DIRECTORY for the Caregiver, Aging, and Disabled to the residents of Dauphin County. With more than 400 listings, we have endeavored to provide a reliable 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. Dauphin 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 repair assistance, 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 sponsors of the Resource DIRECTORY. Their financial support and commitment to the community have assisted us in producing this informational resource. Sincerely,

Donna K. Anderson, Publisher
