With the youngest members of the huge baby boom generation now all more than 60 years old, aging is becoming a hugely important topic for the City of Los Angeles…which is now seeking civic-minded seniors to join a special Advisory Council on Aging. Here are the details, courtesy of last week’s newsletter from City Councilmember Paul Koretz:
“The Older Americans Act mandates that the City’s Council on Aging be the principal advocacy body for seniors and disabled individuals in the City of Los Angeles. At this time, LA City’s Department of Aging is seeking to identify civically-minded seniors sixty years of age and older to join our Advisory Council on Aging.
The role of the Advisory Council on Aging is to provide older adults who reside in the City the opportunity to lend their insights into our community planning process, identify emerging needs, and make recommendations on how to best serve seniors in the City of Los Angeles.
If you or someone you know is a senior who would be interested in serving as a volunteer on the Department’s Advisory Council on Aging, please contact social worker Zipora Gipson at (213) 202-5635 or via email at [email protected] to obtain more information and an application.”
