Volunteer your opinion! Berks Encore wants to hear from you.

Please join us for one of our small group conversations to help Berks Encore create new programs to serve older adults in our community. Our goal is to gather feedback regarding the proposed programs from individuals and families who could benefit from the services.

Advance registration is necessary. To register for your preferred session, please call Carmen at 610-374-3195 ext 208.

Session A: Tuesday, July 16, 2:00-3:30 pm at Mifflin Community Library

Session B: Wednesday, July 17, 2:00-3:30 pm at West Lawn-Wyomissing Hills Library

Session C: Thursday, August 1, 2:00-3:30 pm at Muhlenberg Community Library

In 2018, Berks Encore held several conversations around the community in order to develop a better understanding of the concerns people have around aging and caring for aging loved ones. We heard concerns regarding how to navigate the aging market in our community, stress from with the emotional and financial strain of providing care, and fears of the highly unique situations that one can encounter while aging.

Berks Encore has used that research and developed two fee-for-service program prototypes that we would like to review with interested members of our community in these upcoming sessions. Our goal will be to gather feedback and opinions on the proposed programs from individuals and families who would benefit from the services.

Thank you for your dedication to Berks Encore, and we hope to see you in a session!
