Why Advocate for Seniors?

"We must advocate for those in our most vulnerable population to be a top priority; their health and well-being depend on it." -Paul Downey, Serving Seniors President & CEO

Everyone is affected by aging policy, whether by financially supporting programs through tax dollars, utilizing aging programs themselves, or acting as a caregiver to an elderly friend and family member. By advocating on behalf of seniors, you can help create an age-friendly community that helps older adults thrive and reduces the financial strain on the community as a whole.

Here are something things you can do today to help advocate for the needs of low-income seniors:

  • Schedule a meeting with an elected official or community leader
  • Call, email or send a letter to an elected official or community leader
  • Get educated about the issues
  • Join our Full Plate Club to provide life-sustaining support for seniors
