Thanks to the leadership and guidance of Governor Robert Bentley and the support of the Alabama Legislature, the Alabama Department of Senior Services is able to continue serving seniors and individuals with disabilities. Below, please find a link to a copy of ADSS’ 2014-2016 state plan. We received approval for our plan recently and would like to share a copy with you. Local Area Agencies on Aging in your region will be submitting an Area Plan on Aging before October 2014 to cover the years 2015- 2018. We hope you will get involved in this planning process.
Thanks to you and other partners around the state this plan was positively received by Administration on Aging. The Alabama Department of Senior Services held many meetings with various organizations and individuals around Alabama. We also had several town hall meetings, where we received valuable input from individuals directly receiving our services. All of this information and advice was compiled together and integrated into our state plan. This new state plan is a guide that will enable us to continue to move our state forward in achieving the goals set forth by Governor Bentley. Please keep in mind that this is a living document which means that we will be making changes as necessary to fulfill our mission over the next several years. If you have any comments or questions please feel free to contact me or someone at the state office or Area Agency on Aging.
