Summer Senior Advocates Schedules Set for Babylon and Huntington

Blue county seal


Suffolk Legislator Tom Donnelly is pleased to inform Babylon and Huntington residents about the local Suffolk County Office for the Aging Summer 2018 Senior Advocate Schedule.  Senior advocates are County representatives who come out into the community and assist seniors with information gathering, completion of eligibility or recertification applications and referrals to appropriate community agencies.

“Now that the warm weather is here, it’s a pleasant and perfect time for our local senior citizens to come out and meet with the County’s senior advocates in their own communities and get the information and assistance they need,” said Legislator Donnelly.
