The Area Agency on Aging has moved to a new location and will continue to serve the community in just a few days.

The agency is now located at 2423 Allentown Road across from Walmart. Chief executive officer of Area Agency on Aging, Jacqi Bradley says they needed more space, but more importantly they wanted to make a large impact in the community which is why they chose to move somewhere with more traffic and retail to get people's attention. Bradley says the goal is to keep people in the community for as long as possible and with the bigger space they have now, they'll be able to offer the community more services.

"Well we're going to be opening a training center eventually and we will hold classes like Geri-Fit. We have chronic disease self management classes that we offer for folks with diabetes and other chronic diseases to help them just learn on a daily basis how to better manage their disease and then we also offer more wellness programs as well. We have also added in the last year a victim assistance program and so we'll also will have victim support groups for people who have been victims of late life domestic violence or other types of trauma in later in life," commented Bradley.

Staff officially moved into the new space on Monday and they will be open on July 5th. Area Agency on Aging will have an open house on July 25th from 1 to 4 p.m. and anyone is invited to stop by to check out the new space.
