AAASWFL moves to new office location
Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida (AAASWFL) recently announced that it will operate from its new location, at 2830 Winkler Ave., Suite 112, Fort Myers, beginning Sept. 1.
From the new office space, it will continue connecting residents of Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Sarasota counties with local resources, such as elder care, adult day care, housing assistance, home care, meals, housekeeping, legal assistance, personal care and volunteer opportunities.
Due to the current number of positive COVID-19 cases in the area, AAASWFL will remain closed to the public until Oct. 1. At that time, masks will be required upon entry to the building.
For now, supportive specialists remain available by phone on the Elder Helpline at 866-41-ELDER (413-5337). AAASWFL’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition to the move, it welcomes Norma Adorno as the interim chief executive officer, replacing Marianne Lorini who retired in July. She joined the agency as chief operating officer in April and will continue providing leadership and direction for the internal operations of the organization and overseeing all services and programs.
Adorno holds a Master of Science in health care science from Nova Southeastern University and a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice studies from Florida Gulf Coast University. In addition, she has completed several certifications including certified just culture trainer and facilitator, certified job instructor trainer and certified job relations trainer.
