PENNSYLVANIA COUNCIL ON AGING

The Pennsylvania Council on Aging serves as an advocate for older individuals and advises the governor and the department on planning, coordination, and delivery of services to older individuals. The 21 members who make up the council (the majority of whom are required to be age 60 or older) are nominated by the governor and subject to senate confirmation. Five additional members of the council are chairs of the five regional councils.
