Senior Action Day is returning to the West Village. Organized by the Social Services committee of Community Board 2, it will be similar to an event held last year on the same theme. At that event, several hundred local elderly residents of The Village saw information presented by over thirty healthcare providers, local businesses with senior discounts, social service agencies and others.
This year’s event should have at least as good a showing. It will be at the LGBT Center at 208 West 13th Street on June 30th from 10:30 to 3:30. It is open to the public, and it is expected that over thirty exhibitors will be present—addressing a wide range of needs of the elderly residents of The Village and those who provide care for them. Local elected officials have also been invited. Blood pressure screening will be done by staff from the Lenox Hill Healthplex, which is next door to the center. Light refreshment will be provided.
