How can I find the right senior living environment for my loved one’s needs? Am I doing all I can to stay healthy and active? How do I connect with the services I need? The Network in Aging of WNY is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Senior Health and Resource Fair, taking place on May 17 from 10 am to 1 pm at M Hotel Buffalo (formerly Millennium Hotel), 2040 Walden Avenue, Buffalo, adjacent to the Galleria Mall.

“We received wonderful feedback from our first Resource Fair last May,” says Paula Venné-Clendening. “This year will be even bigger, with more participating organizations. We hope our new venue will be a convenient location for both city and suburban residents.”

Seniors and caregivers are invited to attend the event, which will feature over 70 businesses and organizations with expertise in senior housing, estate planning, home care, downsizing, and more. Complimentary blood pressure and glucose screenings will also be available. Whether you are trying to help your parent transition from the family home into an assisted living facility, or you are an active senior looking to stay healthy and independent, the Senior Health and Resource Fair is a great way to connect with local professionals who can provide guidance and assistance.
