Connecticut’s AARP honored State Rep. Joe Serra (D-Middletown) for his leadership as House Co-chair of the Aging Committee to improve the quality of services seniors can receive at home. 

 

Bob Rodman, AARP Advocacy Volunteer, presented with the award on behalf of AARP's 600,000 members in Connecticut.  State Rep. Serra confirmed his dedication to Connecticut’s older residents and said, “A culture is judged by the way they treat their seniors”.  

 

Seniors will now have more options to stay in their own home as they get older without having to go to a nursing home to receive care. “After paying into the system, seniors should not be forced from home to get the care they need,” Said John Erlingheuser, AARP's State Advocacy Director.
