In his approval letter, Administrator and Assistant Secretary Robertson noted, “The State Plan outlines a number of significant activities that will serve as a guide for Delaware’s aging service network during the next four years. Of particular note is your commitment to the implementation of the visionary five pillar priorities including: expanding employment opportunities, supporting families and caregivers, expanding the aging & disability network, protecting rights and preventing abuse, and connecting people to resources. The Administration for Community Living recognizes the on-going and difficult challenges faced by the Delaware Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities during the current pandemic, and I appreciate your commitment and dedication to ensure the continuity of quality services. I am delighted to see that the Delaware Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities continues to serve as an effective and visible advocate for older adults at a state level.”
