The Babylon Summer Senior Advocates will be visiting West Babylon Public Library on July 26th to help answer senior citizen's questions and assist with government-related forms.
Legislator Lou D'Amaro (D–North Babylon) recently announced the advocates will be visiting community centers through the Town of Babylon to help the area's older residents with information gathering, completion of eligibility or recertification applications and referrals to appropriate community agencies.
“Senior citizens are the backbone of our community, and for more than three decades, the Suffolk County Office for the Aging has assisted these very important residents by giving them full and trouble-free access to critical services,” D’Amaro said in a statement. “I urge every senior resident to take full advantage of this professional community outreach program so that they don’t miss out on the County’s network of services.”
Advocates also help seniors with food stamps, Medicare savings programs, Medicaid applications and Heating Emergency Assistance Program (HEAP) applications.
