The mission of the Lehigh Valley Aging in Place (LVAIP) was formed with the purpose of establishing a network of professionals who share the common vision of helping seniors age in place and stay safe, secure and independent, throughout their lifetime.

About Us

Founded in 2006, we seek to help families help seniors by providing an annual comprehensive resource guide, educating the public on aging issues, and supporting business-to-business networking. Today, that spirit of lives on through four key objectives of the nonprofit:

Networking

Provide a forum for senior professionals to network, collaborate and work together to improve senior care across all industries that serve older adults.

Education

Educate older adults and those who care for them by hosting and attending various formats of educational events including health fairs, care panels, and offering a speaker’s bureau to speak to groups. 

Communication

Each year 10,000 member resource guides are printed and distributed throughout the Lehigh Valley as a tool to help seniors and caregivers navigate issues of aging. The same information is also available on this web site and the digital member directory. Events such as the Lehigh Valley Senior Expo and annual October dance invite seniors to come enjoy festivities and learn about available resources. 

Giving Back

As a 501(c)(3) LVAIP uses monies raised to support the above activities as well as provide donations to worthy organizations who serve seniors. Past donation recipients have included Lehigh Valley Active Life, Project Lifesaver, and others. In addition, LVAIP provides annual scholarships to students going to school for nursing and other related senior care industries.
