Since 2005 Penn Asian Senior Services’ work has been focused on improving the lives of the frail Asian American immigrants in Pennsylvania, promoting health and wellness, and ending the cycle of social isolation due to language barriers. An essential part of the way we approach that work is a focus on bolstering a sense of dignity and pride in our clients.
