Pennsylvania Council Formed to Advise on Improving Services to Older Adults, People with Disabilities
Date:5/12/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of Aging and the Office of Long-Term Living today announced the formation of a 15-member Quality Council that will advise on new policies and procedures to ensure quality management of in-home and community services.

"Many older citizens and those with disabilities prefer to live independently and at home -- rather than in a nursing facility -- so we want to make sure that the services we provide are the best that can be offered," said Secretary of Aging John Michael Hall. "The new council brings together experts from across Pennsylvania to help us improve on our programs."

The Office of Long-Term Living will receive the council's recommendations, based on its surveys, research and reports, to help provide the highest quality of assistance to the thousands of consumers who receive services in their homes. These services include attendant care, transportation, home-delivered meals for older adults, home health and personal assistance services.

The council is comprised of nine members from the public and six from the Office of Long-Term Living staff. The public members are:

  • Jack Armbruster, Erie
  • Carl Bailey, Philadelphia
  • Kimberly Byrd, Philadelphia
  • Richard Kiel, Fayetteville
  • Carol Marfisi, Philadelphia
  • German Parodi, Philadelphia
  • Kimberly Pirilla-Scalise, Belle Vernon
  • Dorothy Robison, Lancaster
  • Sue Ellen Stelevich, Kingston
