Ridge, NY - October 22, 2015 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined Senior Advocate Pam Kreutz as she assisted residents with concerns at Leisure Village on Monday, September 28th. After realizing that Leisure Village did not have a designated advocate, Legislator Anker worked diligently with Suffolk County’s Office of the Aging and the Leisure Village Board to have an advocate placed in the community. The advocate is scheduled to return to the community clubhouse on the fourth Monday of every month to assist residents and educate seniors on benefits they may be eligible for.
“Having Pam at Leisure Village will serve as an invaluable resource to enhance the lives of senior residents. As the senior advocate, she will provide information to seniors about the abundant resources available to them through the Office for the Aging and other county agencies,” said Legislator Anker.
The senior advocate will assist senior citizens and their families with concerns regarding heath and housing, as well as provide any information they need and answer any questions they may have. For more information about the senior services offered through the county and for senior discount information, please contact the office of Legislator Anker at (631) 854-1600.
