Dowel Lomax - InnovAge Pennsylvania LIFE - Allegheny Center Director

We all deserve the best quality care - especially aging adults. I think LIFE is one of the best ways to care for seniors.

Most of Dowel's career has been dedicated to ensuring that senior care and residential facilities provide high-quality senior care services through regulation compliance, licensing, and inspections. Before joining InnovAge, Dowel oversaw the operations and licensure system for Older Adult Daily Living Centers as the division chief with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging. He also worked as a licensing representative with the Department of Human Services where he conducted inspections of assisted living residences and personal care boarding homes. Dowel also served as an aging care management supervisor for the Chester County Office of Aging. Dowel began his career at Elwyn Inc. and earned his bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies from Neumann University in Ason, PA. 

When Dowel was a state inspector, he monitored LIFE programs. He noticed the staff acted like a family. This drew him to the LIFE program and he eventually joined InnovAge as a center director. He says it was a natural fit.

Dowel has been married for more than 30 years and they have two children. Their favorite vacation destinations are Saint Maarten and Caymen Islands.
