ABOUT PA LINK

Helping Seniors and Those With Disabilities 

 

In Pennsylvania, the Aging & Disability Resource Center is known as the Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources, commonly referred to as the PA Link.

 

It is designed to be a cross-age system network of partner agencies who collaborate to service individuals who need long term services and supports. The coordinated network of partners allows a consumer to initiate contact with any PA Link partner and access needed information, assistance, and resources.

 

The "no wrong door" approach attempts to minimize duplication of efforts by both consumer and provider. PA Link partners assist the following populations, regardless of income: adults age 60+, individuals living with any type of disability, persons living with behavioral health or substance abuse issues, and the caregivers and family members of these populations.
