History and Accomplishments

Because of the vision and pioneering spirit of the Delaware Community Foundation, and support from AstraZeneca  and the United Way of Delaware the Delaware Aging Network (DAN) is changing the shape of the older adult service delivery system throughout the state of Delaware and helping senior Delawareans meet the challenges of remaining independent.

DAN fulfilled its purpose and achieved its program goals.

  • Improved older adultsí abilities to access  support and referrals through the care management services in New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties

  • Established a program to prevent isolation and enhance quality of life for older adults by providing transportation partially funded through the 5310 program administer by DART

  • Enhanced collaboration between senior service agencies in each county and statewide. Nineteen (19) agencies actively participated in the network and another thirty-five (35) organizations collaborated with DAN

  • Expanded the service capacity of network agencies and reduced duplication of services by providing care management services, utilizing  a statewide database for information and referral and outreach activities

  • Participated in the American Planning Association's regional conference about creating livable communities for older adults

  •  

    Public Policy Initiative

    DAN representatives from all three counties meet regularly with elected officials to increase awareness of the Delaware Aging Network. Efforts are made to continually identify critical concerns for the growing older population and to develop cooperative and collaborative solutions.
