While the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has put several existing agencies, including the administration on Aging, the Office on Disability, and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities into a new Administration on Community Living to help dependent adults receive care while remaining in their communities, Pennsylvania has established 52 Links that cover all 67 counties to improve access to long-term care supports through an integrated network of local partners committed to expanding the use of community-based solutions, promoting consumer directed decision making, and improving quality of services regardless of age, physical/developmental disability, or ability to pay.
