Open meeting set on aging issues

The Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability, in partnership with the Upper Cumberland Area Agency on Aging and Disability, will be hosting an Open Meeting on February 21, 2013, to discuss the needs of older Tennesseans and adults with disabilities in the Upper Cumberland.  The meeting will begin at 1:30 pm CST. at the Life Church

 The issues and concerns that affect Tennessee seniors and adults with disabilities and their families are great and vary by region of the State.   In an effort to better understand the needs of Tennessee’s aging population, the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability is conducting a statewide listening tour in the form of town hall meetings across the state; these town hall meetings will give stakeholders and interested parties the opportunity to share their issues, needs and concerns with state officials.   

 The Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability invites all stakeholders and consumers to participate in this open discussion and voice the unmet needs and concerns in the towns and communities across the Upper Cumberland.
