At the request of the Fairfield St. James Civic Association, Suffolk County
Legislator Robert Trotta recently hosted a Senior Information Fair for its
residents. Suffolk County government offices and local organizations provided
information about the programs and services they offer for seniors. The Suffolk
County Sheriff’s Office issued Senior Emergency ID Cards and offered
information about their Yellow Dot Programs, as well as collecting
expired/unused medications. A nurse from St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center conducted
free blood pressure screening for the residents and provided information about staying
healthy. More than 150 people attended the event.
would like to also thank the other participating organizations that shared
their resources with the residents: Suffolk County Office of the Aging, Suffolk
County Department of Health Services, Town of Smithtown Senior Citizens Center,
St. Johnland Adult Day Programs, NYS Attorney General’s Office, Clear Captions,
Gurwin Center, Long Island Alzheimer’s Association, Northwell Imaging Center,
and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program. There was also a drawing for a free
jar of jam made by Legislator Trotta.
“This is a great opportunity to bring the programs and services that are available to seniors to their own community and to share information and resources with the participants. It is my pleasure to host this event,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta.
