Healthy Aging

What we do for Seniors



Families and the community benefit when seniors are able to stay safely in their own homes. 

Why our mission matters

  • 28,000 seniors in Lehigh and Northampton Counties have difficulties meeting their own basic care needs.
  • The population of 65+ has increased by 10% over the past 4 years - from 99,000 seniors to 109,000.

How we improve the health and safety of seniors

United Way founded the Alliance on Aging – the number one collective impact model for healthy aging in the country.
