US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), was established in 1961 as a temporary committee. It was granted permanent status in February, 1977. While special committees have no legislative authority, they can study issues, conduct oversight of programs, and investigate reports of fraud and waste. Note: Senior victims of fraud can report it to the Fraud Hotline.

The Special Committee on Aging has served as a focal point in the Senate for discussion and debate on matters relating to older Americans, and often submits its findings and recommendations for legislation to the Senate. The Committee additionally publishes materials of assistance to those interested in public policies which relate to the elderly.

For more information, visit the Committee's press releases page. It is a gold mine of legislative issue and hearing information, and resource links, plus: you can sign up for e-News; order publications; view the latest list of issues and press releases; get prescription assistance ... and more!

Information for SHINE - Fuel Assistance - SNAP Programs

Learn about resources that are available to you locally. COA Outreach Coordinator Audrey Allen can help you learn about available local resources and current happenings in our community.

SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case). It pays directly to your primary heating source vendor, and automatically includes electric and telephone bill discounts if you are eligible, saving you money to use for medical or other expenses.

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) provides free health insurance information, counseling and assistance to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare.

Naples - Ronald B. Marshall passed away peacefully on May 13, 2024, one month shy of his 85th birthday with family by his side. Ron was born and raised in Lynn, MA and had many childhood friends and fond memories from his younger days. He and his beloved wife, Jan, moved to Salisbury where they raised their three daughters and were small business owners in Amesbury for many years. Ron was a family man, a fisherman and outdoorsman to the core (a lifelong member of Lynn Fish and Game and member of Sebago Lake Anglers), a lover of animals especially his many beloved pets, outgoing (he had an uncanny ability to make friends), a Christian, and passionate about politics. Ron was also a resilient man and lived life to the fullest despite a brain aneurysm at 49 years old that left him with challenging deficits. Following his aneurysm, Jan sold their home in 1992 and they moved to Naples, Maine to be closer to family and fishing. He lived in Naples for over 30 years and loved the Lakes Region. Here you could find Ron fishing on the many ponds and lakes, walking the Causeway with his beloved dog(s) (rain, snow, or shine), at the Cornerstone Gospel Church, or at 'Dunkies' for a coffee at any chance he could get. And, in his later years, April-October, tooling around town on his golf cart. In the last few years of his life, Ron was eager to be reunited with his beloved wife Jan, oldest daughter, Kathy, brother, Jack, and many more who went before him. His legacy and memory will go on through his daughters, Lynne and Tracy, son-in-law Mike, adored grandson, Nash, and through enjoyment of he and his wife's house in Naples, 'the house that Jan built,' by his family. All are welcome to attend visitation and services on Saturday, June 1, from 1-3 pm at Hall Funeral Home, 165 Quaker Ridge Road, Casco, ME, followed by fellowship (light food and beverages) at Cornerstone Gospel Church, 25 Sebago Road (Rt 114), Naples, ME.

Newburyport - Eva, a loving mother and grandmother was born on November 24, 1923 in Hyannisport to John DeGrace, Sr. and Antoinette "Annette". She passed peacefully in Newburyport, Monday, May 13th after a brief illness. She is survived by daughters Diane Green (Connecticut) and Lori Laverty (New Hampshire), granddaughter Grace Laverty, brother Robert DeGrace, as well as many nieces, nephews, and extended family. Predeceased by her loving husband Laurie Calvin "Cal" Green, infant son Arnold Robert, and beloved grandson Benjamin Laverty, as well as siblings Leander, Gertrude, Evelyn, John Jr., and Arnold. Eva's life was a testament to resilience and love. Eva was a graduate of Barnstable High School class of 1942. Throughout her diverse career she made fast friends and touched the lives of hundreds. She was a volunteer organist at Zion Union Church for many years. Her last job prior to retirement was school nurse at Hyannis East Elementary School, a position she embraced. Eva celebrated her 100th birthday in November and she enjoyed several events with family and friends to mark that amazing milestone. She was a woman of great faith and prayed in earnest for the well-being of others. Known for her sharp memory, and independence, she lived life with zest and grace. Her positivity was infectious. She reminded us proudly that she got her driver's license at 16 and voted in every election! Over the years, she, along with husband Cal, extended loving support to many. In later years she enjoyed word search puzzles, the Wheel of Fortune program and visitors. The telephone was her friend. She stayed connected with loved ones and acquaintances across the country. We will all miss those calls! The family would like to extend gratitude to Darlene Jones, the assistant whose care allowed Mom to maintain her independence and who became a third daughter. We also want to acknowledge the friends from True Grace Memorial Church, Philadelphia and the members of Hope Community Church, Newburyport. Eva's wake will be held on Saturday, May 25th from 12:00-1:00, followed by a service at 1:00, both at the First Baptist Church 486 Main Street, Hyannis, MA 02601. The service will be live-streamed.
