Temple Isaiah of Great Neck will be hosting a presentation by the Nassau County Office for the Aging followed by a Question and Answer Session.
There will be a blood pressure check provided by Mount Sinai South Nassau Health System after the presentation. The program will be held on Wednesday, Sept, 27 at 2 P.M.
The Nassau County Office for the Aging is responsible for advising the County Executive and government officials on the problems and needs of the county’s 300,000 residents age 60 and over.
Being the first county government in the nation to establish a county agency dedicated to providing programs and services for the over-60 population, Nassau County’s Office for the Aging empowers older persons to live more independently community-wide.
As the official Area Agency on Aging for Nassau County, the office develops a county-wide plan to provide services that assist older persons to remain independent and living in their own homes for as long as possible
