Meeting the needs of older and disabled: Any thoughts?

Input from the public is wanted for a Pierce County proposal for meeting the needs of older and disabled adults.

The county Human Services Department’s Aging and Disability Resources will host a public meeting for comments on the draft 2022023 Area Plan Update, including the 2022 proposed budget. The one-hour virtual meeting will be held Sept. 21 at 10 a.m. Participants can join online at or by phone at 253-215-8782 (webinar ID: 971 6214 2351).

The draft plan provides new information for addressing needs over the next two years. Its budget allocates funding for community services such as Alzheimer’s support, counseling, case management, nursing, legal assistance, family caregiver support, senior centers, and senior meal sites.

Feedback from the public can also be given via e-mail at or by postal mail to Connie Kline, Social Services Supervisor-ADR, Pierce County Human Services, 3602 Pacific Ave. Suite 200, Tacoma, WA 98418.
