Task Force will grant special wish to York County senior

ELIOT, Maine — The York County Elder Abuse Task Force was created to help all York County senior citizens, but this year, its new Wishing Well program will grant a lifelong wish for one lucky York County resident age 65 or older.

 
As the Wishing Well flier states, “Your life has been all about those that you care for. Your family, your friends, your co-workers, your community. You have set aside your dreams, your hopes, your goals and your wishes to care for those closest to you. We believe it is time for life to be about you.”
“It’s similar to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, but our program is not necessarily for someone who is ill,” said Task Force Co-chairwoman Karen Connolly.
 
Eliot Police Department Community Resource Officer Candace Noble began YCEATF in 2007. She said she felt strongly that elder abuse victims needed to have voices supporting them. John Lizanecz of the York Police Department was also involved. Noble is now one of the task force’s co-chairmen.
