Thanks For Support

Dear Editor;

We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the Democratic district leader from the 23 A.D., Mr. Lew Simon, for his untiring support of our program.

Since the closing of Neponsit Health Care Center, Mr. Simon has been relentless in his efforts to reopen the health care center and to see the Adult Day Care Program in full operation. With the assistance of Lew and our other elected officials, we are operating a wonderful center and offering a full complement of services in a leased space in Far Rockaway.

This is not a permanent solution. Adult day care functions so well as part of long term health care and the center must be associated with an operating nursing home. Also, though we are very proud of the quality of our center and maintaining our commitment to the community, we are in need of a permanent site. Lew spoke about Neponsit Adult Day Care’s situation at the Queen Health Network annual public meeting on Wednesday, September 29, 1999. All board members of the NYC Health and Hospital Corporation were in attendance and the response was very encouraging.

Lew’s optimism and spirit is infectious and we thank him for everything. His understanding of our issues is on target, and we are positive that all our dreams will come to fruition.

Thank you for everything.
