Currently, older Pennsylvanians have to work through multiple agencies for the health and human services that they need. For example, seniors:Receive prescription assistance from PACE through PDA while locating where to dispose of unwanted or expired prescription drugs through DDAPApply for the aging waiver through DHS while seeking home and community-based services through PDASearch for information on the quality of nursing homes through DOH while reporting concerns to PDA once they’re in a facility. If those concerns result in an investigation that identifies a deficiency as threatening to a persons’ life or safety, that investigation and the subsequent penalties associated with it are administered by DOH.Older Pennsylvanians will now have one point of service with the Department of Health and Human Services. This will result in less confusion and easier access as constituents and their families seek services. It also builds on the Wolf Administration’s commitment to enabling citizens to age in place by preventing instability of health and wellness and protecting the most vulnerable from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and exploitation.Seniors will not see any cuts to their programs due to the creation of this new department and it will have no impact on how lottery fund monies are used to support senior programs. In fact, senior benefits and programs will be bolstered by the focus of a single agency.The Wolf Administration is dedicated to continue providing the same services as required under the Older Americans Act, while improving the quality of services for seniors by eliminating the unnecessary duplication of effort and the confusion it creates among Pennsylvania’s seniors and their families.

Vardy set to stay at Leicester – Wenger

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger appears ready to give up his pursuit of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy after saying Sunday he believe the England forward will stay with the Premier League champions.“Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester,” Wenger said in an interview with Chinese TV.Earlier this month, Arsenal were reported to have triggered a release clause in Vardy’s contract in a move worth around £20 million ($29m, 25.5m euros).That sparked a counter-offer from Leicester, with the 29-year-old Vardy having signed his most recent contract keeping him at the Midlands club until 2019 in February. Vardy scored 24 league goals as Leicester, 5,000/1 rank outsiders, were crowned champions of England last season, finishing 10 points in front of second-placed Arsenal, one of the Premier League’s established powers.His club form saw Vardy force his way into England’s squad for the ongoing European Championships in France, where he scored in a 2-1 group-stage win over Wales on Thursday.Vardy has been repeatedly non-committal about his club future while on England duty and he is not expected to make an announcement until his involvement at Euro 2016 has ended.When asked ahead of England’s Group B match against Slovakia on Monday, if he had anything to add about his club prospects, Vardy said: “No, nothing at all. I am just here completely focusing on England. That’s all that I want to do at the moment.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
