Sen. Kelly Leads Discussion at Local AARP Chapter Meeting

January 17, 2018


HARTFORD, CONN. – Today State Senator and Co-Chairman of the Aging Committee, Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford), led a discussion on the importance of supporting aging in place initiatives at a Local AARP Chapter Meeting at the Shelton Senior Center.

“Time and time again the Malloy Administration has demonstrated their apathy toward seniors and aging in place initiatives,” said Sen. Kelly. “I think it’s important for my constituents, especially seniors in my district, to know that I do hear their concerns and I am working in Hartford to change this indifferent attitude.”

Sen. Kelly noted how aging in the home is actually more cost-effective for the state of Connecticut and what most seniors prefer.

“At the end of the day, home and community-based services save Connecticut money,” said Sen. Kelly. “It is my goal to continue to broadcast this message in Hartford so that we can enact smart fiscal policies when it comes to aging-in-place, and also give seniors the ability to choose where they want to live as they age.”
