Welcome from County Executive Steve Bellone

The Suffolk County Office for the Aging is the designated Area Agency on Aging under the Older Americans Act. For over 40 years, Suffolk County Office for the Aging has administered federal, state and county programs for persons 60 years of age and older.

Specific goals for the Office are to develop a comprehensive service system designed to assist persons 60 years of age and older in maintaining maximum independence and dignity, to remove barriers to economic and personal independence, and to provide a continuum of care for the vulnerable elderly. Most importantly, Suffolk County Office for the Aging acts as advocate on behalf of all Suffolk County senior citizens.

The Suffolk County Office for the Aging will be conducting public hearings on its Annual Implementation Plan for the program year April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021.

Residents are free to choose the location and date that best fits their schedule.

The hearings will provide a venue for community members to learn about programs and services provided by the Office for the Aging. It is also an opportunity for the public to offer feedback on issues impacting older residents.
