Businesses and organizations that assist with life-changing transitions faced by our aging population are invited to participate in and sponsor the 2018 Senior Living Fair. Our senior population and their families have important questions that need to be addressed:

•Who do we turn to for help with answering our questions?
•How do we, the family, evaluate the quality and competency of the care for our loved one?
•Where do we find options for living facilities?
•What is assisted living? How can we help our loved one transition to assisted living?
•When is rehab the best option?
•How do we protect our loved one financially?
•What are the legal pitfalls to avoid?
•Is handicap accessible transportation available?
•Who can assist with palliative or hospice care? How do we ensure end-of-life decisions are appropriate?
•What do we need to know about Medicare? Medicaid?  Part B and D?

PLATINUM & GOLD SPONSORSHIPS AVAILABLE – Deadline March 2, 2018
