Nakusp hosts first-ever Seniors’ Fair

The Seniors’ Resource Fair is a new community initiative that will inform and educate older adults living in the Nakusp area about community resources, services and organizations.  A wide variety of organizations will be invited to participate in the event, ranging from local and regional non-profit and government services as well as private business and focus on the health, social and educational needs of seniors and their families.

 

Today, navigating the health and social service systems can be overwhelming.  A Seniors Fair will inform and educate seniors and their family members about key services that promote healthy and active lifestyles, independent living and maybe critical to help them remain in their homes and in their communities.
