Salt Lake County Hires New Director of Aging Services

Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams says Tracey Tabet has been selected as the new Director of Aging Services.  Ms. Tabet is currently the administrator for the Utah Children’s Justice Center program.  She’ll join the county in early January. 

“I’m very pleased that Tracey has accepted this position,” said McAdams.  “She has an impressive track record in public service, most recently as an advocate for children and victims of domestic violence.  She understands the importance of providing services for segments of the community that often just need a temporary boost in order to live comfortable, independent lives. Seniors are a fast-growing demographic and we need to constantly innovate in order to offer programs that address their needs.”

McAdams says that in addition to with her present assignment, Tracey has worked with various Utah Attorneys General to develop initiatives on domestic violence, gang prevention and internet safety. A graduate of the University of Utah and Westminster College, Tracey has a Master’s Degree in Communication as well as degrees in public relations and sociology.

The Salt Lake County Division of Aging Services oversees a variety of programs designed to help support and maintain a healthy, active and engaged senior population, including 17 senior centers, in-home services to help maintain independence, “Meals on Wheels”, respite care and other health and education offerings. The previous director – Sarah Brenna—has accepted the position of Associate Department Director for Human Services in Salt Lake County.
