As part of a statewide effort to understand the needs of older adults, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS), Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services (BEAS) and the State Plan on Aging (SPOA) Planning Committee are seeking public input that will guide and inform the next four-year State Plan on Aging.
Listening sessions will run through December 7. Many senior and community centers will host the sessions immediately following the congregate meal to make it easier for older adults to attend. If accommodations are needed for communication access such as interpreters, CART (captioning), assistive listening devices, or other auxiliary aids and/or services, please contact Kim Hillson at 603-271-9215 or Kimberly.Hillson@dhhs.nh.gov 5 business days before the listening session. At least 5 business days advance notice is requested in order to assure availability; requests made fewer than 5 days prior to the event will attempt to be accommodated but cannot be guaranteed.
