Older adults in Allegheny County have made and continue to make great contributions to our community. DHS makes available, to persons 60 years of age and older a wide variety of programs to help them transition through the changes that come with the passing years.
From senior community centers, to in-home services, to finding alternatives to nursing home care, all of these services can be discussed by calling the DHS AAA SeniorLine at 412-350-5460 or sending an email to: SeniorLine@alleghenycounty.us.
