‘Aging In Place’ Program October 14

“No matter how hard we try to avoid it, every person has to address the issue of independent living as they undergo the aging process,” said Senator Kemp Hannon. “The growing awareness of the benefits of staying in your home as long as possible are widely recognized.”
Hannon is inviting all Sixth Senatorial District residents to attend his “Aging In Place” seminar at the Bethpage Public Library (47 Powell Ave., Bethpage) on Friday, Oct. 14, from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

“Here in New York, the population of ages 65 and over is projected to be almost three million, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,” said Hannon. “That is a steady increase, expected to continue, and we are working very hard to offer support services and information to help you stay in your home as long as possible.”

Featured topics include discussions of many resources available to local families, and to differentiate between Social and Medical model day care; how to make Medicaid more affordable, including cost-saving programs, Medigaps, and how Medicare coordinates with Medicaid; “Staying in your own home,” with information on getting assistance, how and where to start; and a review of the options available if a senior stays at home versus going into a facility, choosing the right one and how to pay for it.

Reservations for this event are required and can be made by visiting www.kemphannon.com or by calling 516-739-1700.
