Janzen appointed to state sub-committee on aging

Lu Janzen, Hillsboro, has been appointed to serve on the Nursing Facility Sub?committee of the state?s Advisory Council on Aging.

The goal of the subcommittee will be to advance the quality of long-term care while encouraging Kansas residents to plan for possible long-term care needs.

The subcommittee will provide specific input regarding consumer education, and ideas on how to encourage consumers and families to begin preparing for aging issues and long-term care needs.

Janzen retired at the end of 2012 after 42 years at Park?side Homes, 37 years as lead administrator.

The Advisory Council on Aging, of which Janzen is a member, is an arm of the Kansas Department of Children and Families. It meets twice a year to advocate for the aging in state government and private agencies.
