Tinee Furbert Voices Support for Age Concern

At the grand opening of Age Concern’s Admiralty Park facility, Minister of Social Development and Seniors the Honorable Tinee Furbert, JP, MP revealed her excitement for the new facility and is pushing anyone over the age of 50 to take full advantage of all membership opportunities there.

“ Age Concern has advocated for seniors and older adults for a very long time and are definitely the go-to charity for finding out information about seniors,” she said.

According to her, membership fees are very affordable and are free for anyone over 80, and all members, whether they’ve just turned 50 or are celebrating their 100th birthday, receive the same benefits from the organization.

In order to help curb the current spike in positive Coronavirus cases, Minister Furbert and the Government are asking people to ensure that they are following the proper COVID precautions by wearing masks and sanitizing their hands and also making sure that whoever they come into close contact with are doing the same.

“ It’s important that we protect our seniors as best we can, and Age Concern has been very instrumental throughout the pandemic in helping seniors [and older adults] to access testing, registering people for vaccinations, as well as helping to transport them to testing and vaccination sites,” she said. “ The Ministry is also helping seniors to access Safekey certificates.”
