Aging News

The Aging News brings you the latest news about topics that are important to you! It includes the "Golden Living" column, which runs in weekly newspapers throughout Dutchess County, along with additional information and helpful links.  Find out about "A Matter of Balance" classes, events for older adults and caregivers, scam alerts, courses, and much more. 

Sign up today to have Aging News Delivered to your inbox each week, usually on Fridays. You'll also receive the quarterly THRIVE60+ newsletter, as well as the annual "Medicare Spotlight" newsletter, which is published just before Medicare's open enrollment season in the fall.

If you have friends who aren't online and would like to be added to future OFA newsletter mail deliveries, or if you'd like to update your mailing address, contact OFA Outreach Coordinator Brian Jones at 845-486-2544 or bjones@dutchessny.gov. If you're a snowbird, contact us before you head south, and we'll skip mailing the winter newsletter - and resume when you're back.
