Aging advocates headed for Sacramento

The county's Advisory Council on Aging invites seniors to join a June 11 trip to Sacramento to speak to representatives about the importance of retaining senior services that are in danger of being severely cut due to the budget crisis. Among endangered programs are Adult Protective Services (APS), which works to prevent elder financial and physical abuse, and the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) that enables frail seniors to remain in their own homes.

Kitty Barnes, consultant to the Contra Costa County Area Agency on Aging, asks that interested people RSVP to her at by June 6; telephone 685-3795.
