It’s no secret that the number of seniors in Indiana is rapidly growing. In fact, according to a study conducted by WorkforceWise in December 2009, the number of Indiana residents over the age of 65 will double, from 753,000 in 2000 to 1.48 million in 2040. By 2035, adults age 65 and above will outnumber children under the age of 15.
With limited resources and tight budgets, the growing senior demographic presents a very significant challenge for the State of Indiana’s Division of Aging. That’s why we are thrilled that the State of Indiana has chosen to partner with Harmony Information Systems to ensure the state can meet tomorrow’s challenges.
The Indiana Division of Aging has selected and is implementing Harmony for Aging™ statewide to streamline existing processes and improve the quality of nutrition programs including home-delivered meals and congregate meals. The State will use Harmony to consolidate the management of all nutrition programs into one central system which will greatly simplify the administration and reporting process – resulting in less time spent on administration and more time and resources spent providing quality home delivered and congregate meals to a growing number of Senior Hoosiers.
