Learn about seniors helping other seniors in Sussex County

Georgetown, DE (Nov. 6, 2017): As people grow older, their health care needs change. But the need to connect with family and friends remains undiminished. Too often, though, these relationships are lost as life-long friends and loved ones pass away. A new health care agency in Sussex County aims to change that by meeting seniors’ health needs, while providing them a source of social interaction.

 The Sussex County Advisory Committee on Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities, at its November meeting, will host a presentation by Mary Anne  Bonafair, care coordinator with “Seniors Helping Seniors”. The meeting will take place at 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, at the Sussex County Administrative Offices West Complex, 22215 N. DuPont Boulevard, in Georgetown. Ms. Bonafair will provide an overview of the full range of services Seniors Helping Serniors provides – all delivered by a dedicated staff of empathetic, senior professionals.

The Sussex County Advisory Committee on Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities is an 11-member panel established by the Sussex County Council to be an advocate for programs and policies that benefit older and disabled residents. The committee meets every other month, in January, March, May, July, September and November. All meetings are open to the public. 

The Advisory Committee’s mission is to increase dialogue, make recommendations to Sussex County Council, and to give support, assistance and advice on significant issues and programs that may affect the lives of the county’s aging and adults with physical disabilities populations.
