Supporting Seniors and Councils on Aging

This morning Richard Curran, my Constituent Services and Community Outreach Coordinator, attended the Merrimack Valley Councils on Aging Legislative Breakfast held at the Tewksbury Council on Aging. Discussions ranged from ways to support the growing aging population in our area and the Governor’s proposal to increase essential funding for to deliver services to seniors in our communities.

Programs which help seniors to stay active and healthy such as Meals on Wheels, transportation opportunities to reach medical appointments and grocery stores, social activities, and access to information and interaction at senior centers have proven to be effective.
