One of the greatest ways we can improve seniors’ lives is to ensure that our communities are built upon age-friendly public policies. Get involved in our advocacy efforts to combat ageism, promote a positive depiction of aging, and ensure the funding and programs seniors need to thrive.
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
