The Association on AgingNY was excited to have a very productive advocacy day. Directors from across the state were able to meet with their elected officials, and provide information on our services and supports.
As highlighted by Executive Director Becky Preve's testimony, services provided via the Aging network are focused on enabling individuals and their loved ones to age in place. This philosophy is based on a person centered approach, and provides the added benefit of avoiding spending down to Medicaid, or entering a skilled nursing facility.
We are very pleased from the support of the members of the aging committee, and the Senate Aging Chair Rachel May and Assembly aging chair Harry Bronson.
