Senior Fair 1

Melissa Slater from Home Instead Senior Care talks to a Cayuga County Senior Moments Resource Fair attendee during the 2017 event.

The Cayuga County Office for the Aging and NY Connecs invite you to participate in our fourth annual Senior Moments Resource Fair! We will have present a wide variety of organizations that provide services, information and assistance to senior citizens, their caregivers and family members. Our goal is to educate the community about the importance of planning for the care of elderly family members by providing the necessary information and resources at a convenient, one-stop-shop event. We have many new and interesting organizations attending this year, as well as the usual vendors that have participated every year!

The fourth annual Senior Moments Resource Fair will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at Fingerlakes Mall, 1579 Clark St. Road, Aurelius. The event is free and open to the public. Seniors can request rides there by calling the SCAT Van by Sept. 6 at (315) 253-0996.

The fair will include a public hearing at 9:30 a.m. where the Cayuga County Office for the Aging will share information about programs and services, and listen to suggestions for program needs. We value your input! How can we help the older citizens in our community and their families meet the challenges of aging in the coming years?

Attorneys from Boyle & Anderson P.C. will provide brief senior legal consultations from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
