The Orangeville & District Seniors Centre will host a health and wellness fair to provide seniors with information they can use to live healthy and vibrant lives.

As more seniors wish to age in place or maintain their current residence where they feel comfortable, they may need more help making decisions, staying healthy and learning new things.

This seniors fair will give people information on how to achieve some of their goals and stay safe.

The fair will begin with the topic of ‘aging well’ with tips and information provided by a local doctor.

A speaker from the Telechek Program will show seniors how to stay connected through various systems so they can keep informed and in contact with the organizations or institutions they need.

Orangeville Mayor Lisa Post will speak about the services provided by the town to assist senior citizens in the area. A representative from Dufferin Community Services will cover transportation information and food services.

Families of seniors can learn valuable information on how to help those with dementia. The Alzheimer’s Society is sharing a presentation and will explain what can be done to help people as their cognitive skills decline.

From the Ontario Provincial Police, Andrew Fines will make a presentation on preventing elder abuse and what you should do if you suspect it is happening to someone you know.

The Seniors Health & Wellness Fair will take place next Wednesday (Mar. 22) at the Orangeville & District Seniors Centre (26 Bythia Street).

Pre-registration is required to attend the event.
