Huntington, NY - Sept. 5, 2018 - On Tuesday, Congressman Tom Suozzi (D – Long Island, Queens) hosted an “Aging in Place Roundtable” at the Manhasset Public Library. Invited participants in this roundtable discussion presented the Congressman with information about what support systems are needed to allow seniors to age at home.
“As the baby boomers age and our life expectancy increases, more and more seniors will require assistance if they are to continue to live healthy and fulfilling lives. The professionals in this discussion provided me with more information regarding the different programs in my district; NORCs (Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities), Project Independence and our network of senior centers. Hearing from these professionals helps me better understand the challenges these programs face and some of the potential options for addressing these issues,” said Suozzi.
Participants in the Roundtable included Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth, who welcomed the Congressman, directors of New York State, New York City, Nassau and Suffolk Counties and Town offices for the aging, and local providers and their service partners of existing Aging in Place programs in the 3rd Congressional District.
“Today was another great step, and I look forward to furthering this discussion. Funding, while obviously necessary, isn’t going to solve this. We need to identify partners to work together to encourage and develop programs such as NORCs and Project Independence throughout the District. This was a great meeting with great professionals who are committed to helping our seniors age in place,” said Suozzi.
