The Greater Bridgeport Elderly Service Council meets every month on the first Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. at Middlebrook Farms Assisted Living, 2750 Reservoir Avenue in Trumbull, CT. Those who attend are professionals who work in businesses related to the elderly, however, any one in the community can attend. Every month there is a guest speaker presenting helpful information.
Some of the topics Marie Allen, Executive Director of the South Western Area Agency on Aging (SWCAA) spoke on were Social Security benefits, assistance for the disabled and legislative efforts to assist the elderly. Marie thanked Diane Fekete of Connecticut In-Home Assistance for her legislative efforts to increase reimbursement to caregivers. As Legislative Chairperson, Diane Fekete is currently working on informing the community regarding the Governor’s Budget Proposals that will negatively impact seniors and caregivers in Connecticut.
