Advocate for critical supports to help older adults and people with disabilities live healthy lives in the community

Older adults and people with disabilities want to remain safely in their homes as they age. Many state programs and independent organizations exist to help people remain connected with friends, families, and communities while avoiding costly institutional care, but these programs need legislative commitment and strong funding.

Please join us at the Statehouse to urge your legislators to fund and support quality, effective community-based services for older adults!  And wear blue!

Featured Speakers:
Senator Patricia D. Jehlen
Representative Thomas M. Stanley
Chairs, Joint Committee on Elder Affairs

Box lunches are available courtesy of Mass Home Care, AARP, and Massachuseetts Association of Councils on Aging.
