Western New York is rich in resources for our senior population. The Network in Aging of WNY (NIA) is making it easy to find the information you or your loved one needs at a Senior Health and Resource Fair on Thursday, May 12 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Buffalo Event Center at 4475 Transit Rd in Williamsville (the former Sears store at Eastern Hills Mall). Seniors and caregivers are invited to visit with over 40 Western New York businesses and organizations.

“NIA is so excited to be able to bring this very important event to the community and showcase the invaluable expertise and exceptional services our members can provide to seniors in need,” said Pamela Pace, NIA’s Vice President of Community Relations. We encourage everyone to stop in and discover ways we may be able to help.”

Experts in senior housing, estate planning, Medicare, home care, and nutrition will be on hand to answer questions. 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 for opportunities to remain healthy and independent, the Senior Health and Resource Fair will connect you with professionals who can provide you with guidance and assistance.

Founded in 1981, NIA is a non-profit voluntary corporation that brings together individuals and organizations involved in aging and long-term care. The organization currently has 110 member agencies that provide education, health and social services, community, and government leadership to members of our community.
