Age & Dementia Friendly Cape Ann Community Summit

Thanks to the leadership and perseverance of SeniorCare Inc. and its Chief Executive Officer Scott Trenti, yesterday state and local officials, human service providers and interested community members came together for the Age and Dementia Friendly Cape Ann Community Summit.

The summit was focused on efforts in Gloucester, Essex, Rockport and Manchester-by-the-Sea to recognize and respond to the needs of all residents by creating a supportive, welcoming environment where everyone, regardless of age or disability, can thrive.

The summit was informative, productive, and energizing. I was pleased to be able to share some introductory remarks at the summit, and to be joined by Secretary of Health and Humans Services Mary Lou Sudders and Acting Secretary for Elder Affairs Robin Lipson in expressing state support for the project. Also participating were local officials such as Mayor Sefatia Romeo Thenken, Town Administrator Mitch Vieira, Town Administrator Greg Federspiel and Select board members Ruth George and Andrew Spinney.

Representative Brad Hill also attended the summit ,and Representative Ann Margaret Ferrante supports the project. You can learn more about Age and Dementia Friendly Cape Ann at -
