On July 20th, KIPDA representatives will be in Washington, DC to urge policymakers to protect the vital programs that help older adults maintain their health and independence and age in place in their homes and communities for as long as possible. The Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA) is an association of local governments in a nine-county region of southern Indiana and north central Kentucky.
KIPDA Region’s (including Jefferson, Bullitt, Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble Counties) aging population is exploding at precisely the time federal policymakers are considering drastic changes to key programs that help older adults age independently. “The potential impact of reforms to programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security is troubling,” says Barbara Gordon, Director, Division of Social Services, of KIPDA.
In addition to visits with Senator Rand Paul and Senator Mitch McConnell, KIPDA will participate in the 36th Annual Conference of the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, where leading aging experts will gather to address key issues affecting America’s rapidly aging population.
