Senate Majority Whip Pat Browne’s conversation with Secretary of Aging Brian Duke is featured during this month’s installment of “The Browne Report” television show.
Senator Browne and Secretary Duke discussed the role the state Department of Aging plays in providing assistance and resources to seniors along with a variety of the services offered through the state lottery and general fund. Their conversation included issues such as PACE/PACENET, in-home care assistance programs, senior healthcare concerns, Alzheimer awareness and state support for senior centers.
“One of the most important responsibilities we have as state legislators is to help provide services and programs to assist our ever-growing senior citizen population,” Senator Browne said. “I thank Secretary Duke for adding his insight and expertise with aging services.
The show also highlighted Senator Browne’s recent senior information fair at Country Meadows Retirement Community in Allentown. This annual event is intended to provide seniors and their families with information on a myriad of programs and services available to them from state and local governments and community groups.
“There are many senior citizen programs offered by both government and private sector agencies and this senior fair brings that information to seniors all under one roof,” Senator Browne said. “I appreciate Country Meadows for hosting the event and all of the vendors who turned out to highlight their services.”
