At the Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging we recognize the inherent dignity of older individuals and believe they are entitled to health, honor, and self-determination. We are committed to maximizing efficient use of resources to enhance the lives of all seniors residing in Dauphin County. In order to achieve these goals, our actions are built around the following core beliefs:
- We should prioritize services to older persons with the greatest economic & social needs.
- All older persons should have the opportunity for maximum growth & development, health, happiness, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency.
- Older individuals should have their autonomy (right to self-direction) respected.
- Coordinate services with other county departments and community agencies in order to strengthen our ability to effectively serve older persons in need.
