Patten Free Library is hosting a virtual listening session put on by Maine’s Cabinet on Aging to hear from older adults and their family members about ways that the State of Maine can serve, support, and recognize the needs of older people across the State.
The Cabinet on Aging was created by executive order of Governor Janet Mills in 2022 to help advance policies that support all Maine people in aging safely, affordably, and in ways and settings that best serve their needs. It brings together State government agencies to coordinate and advance work on a range of issues such as affordable housing and long-term services and supports; financial security and protection against fraud; access to information, broadband, and services; and engagement and employment in Maine’s growing economy.
As someone aging in Maine, we hope you will join us to let us know about the issues that are important to you. Your input will provide important information to the Cabinet on Aging as it set its priorities for the coming years.
While anyone is welcome to attend, this session is designed to hear directly from older individuals and/or family members.
