Elizabethtown Chapter 1050 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees met Oct. 3 in the Elizabethtown Nolin RECC conference room. The guest speaker was Nancy Addington, Director of the local Agency on Aging in Elizabethtown.  She said the agency serves most non-medical needs of citizens age 60 and older.  They try to help people stay in their homes as long as possible by assisting with housekeeping, shopping, meals, transportation, free legal services and even respite for caretakers. They provide information on aging, disability, adult day care, consumer directed options, family caregiver support, health promotions, in-home services and mental health programs, prescription assistance, legal aid, long-term care ombudsman, nutrition, senior centers, personal care, state health insurance benefits and counseling and transportation.

The federal programs offered are at no cost to age 60 and older citizens. 

There are some income restrictions for state assistance.
