WHAT WE DO
NANA partners with many local, non-profit agencies focusing on the senior population in our area. Meals on Wheels, local food banks, Serving Seniors and Veteran's Association's are just a few.
NANA holds a yearly, educational event that honors our social workers, offers CEU's, and educates our network on important topics that effect our senior population and/or our healthcare systems.
NANA provides support and guidance to our local hospitals, nursing homes, personal care homes, home health and hospice by acting as a "concierge" to help their patients/clients in need of services of all kinds.
PUBLIC EDUCATION EVENTS
NEPA AGING NETWORK ALLIANCE AT A GLANCE
NEPA Aging Network Alliance was established in 2013 when members of the Senior Networking Alliance and the Coalition for Aging Services joined together with the goal of promoting awareness of services and issues affecting older adults in Northeast Pennsylvania. NANA is working to accomplish this goal through education, advocacy, networking and coalition building.
Directed by a Board of Members, NANA meets once a month at VNA Hospice and Home Health in Olyphant, PA. Our meetings consist of:
*Discussing current events effecting today's seniors
*Discuss upcoming NANA events and volunteer opportunities
*Guest speakers that cover our topics of interest
*Round-table discussion for marketing and networking purposes
