To the Editor,

I would like to introduce myself as Dover’s Senior Solutions representative, formerly known as Council on Aging. Senior Solutions provides community-based services and opportunities for residents 60 years and older, and also works with families of seniors and offers support and programs for family caregivers.

Jennifer Fitzgerald, Wilmington’s Senior Solutions representative and town nurse, and I held an informal meeting at Butterfield Common on February 10, to introduce ourselves, and to inquire if the seniors of Dover have any concerns as residents of our towns.

There were several issues raised by those who attended, and we would like to know if others in the community have the same concerns. In an effort to reach as many folks as we can, we have devised a short survey which we hope will help identify areas that we can work on, to improve the lives of our senior residents. These surveys will be available at Town Meeting, town offices, and the Pettee Memorial and Dover Free libraries.

Please feel free to contact me at (802) 380-5802, or, or Jennifer at (802) 464-8591 or jafnurse@yahoo to discuss the above information or any other concerns you may have.

We look forward to working with you,

Jill Robart, Dover

Jennifer Fitzgerald, Wilmington
