Franklin County Area Agency on Aging Named Best Practice Site
The Pennsylvania Department of Aging identified the Franklin County Area Agency on Aging as a best practice site for Guardianship Services.
The Pennsylvania Department of Aging (PDA) identified the Franklin County Area Agency on Aging (FCAAA) as a best practice site for Guardianship Services. This recognition follows after a “green” rating was given to the FCAAA Older Adult Protective Services program in early June. The PDA gives green ratings to counties with highly effective programs. In August, the FCAAA staff will co-facilitate a “best practices webinar” to train other Pennsylvania counties.
“Guardianship Services help some of our most vulnerable residents. The best practice designation is especially impressive in light of the very budget-conscious way in which the FCAAA operates,” said Commissioner Chairman Dave Keller.
“I am very proud of our program staff. Their level of commitment and dedication to the residents of Franklin County is exemplary,” said FCAAA Director Traci Kline.
FCAAA Guardianship Services include case management as well as financial and medical decision-making related to an individual’s care and living arrangements, as ordered by the Court. The Guardianship program is performed in conjunction with the department’s Older Adult Protective Services program.
Franklin County Human Services Administrator Stacie Horvath stated, “We are thrilled with the hard work by Traci and her entire Aging team. Kudos for being recognized for all of the high-quality work that they provide to the residents of Franklin County.”
