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