Governor Wolf Outlines a Better Way Forward, Discusses 2017-2018 Budget Initiatives to Benefit Seniors

Charles T. Adams Center, 5 East Market Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA

Governor Wolf will be joined by Secretary of Aging Teresa Osborne to outline the initiatives in his 2017-2018 budget proposal that will help seniors across the Commonwealth.

By consolidating agencies and creating the Department of Health and Human Services, older Pennsylvanians will have one point of service that will result in less confusion and easier access to programs they need. The Department of Health and Human Services will build on the Wolf Administration’s commitment to streamlining government programs while preventing instability of healthcare and protecting Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable citizens from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
