Care Options Fair to be held at Westborough Senior Center

By Bonnie Adams, Managing Editor

Westborough large web iconWestborough – When someone reaches the age where they might need assistance in their daily lives, the decision on what to do can be stressful for the whole family. There are so many options to consider from adult day care, retirement complexes, assisted living, and full-time nursing, to name just a few.

The Westborough Council on Aging will be hosting a “Care Options Fair” Tuesday, June 17 from 2- 7 p.m. at the Westborough Senior Center, 4 Rogers Road.

The fair, according to Senior Center Executive Director Alma Demanche, will be a great opportunity for seniors and their families to get information and meet with representatives of 22 organizations related to senior care.

“We get a lot of calls from companies who would like to share their information,” she said. “We thought rather than have them come in individually and maybe only connect with one or two families they could instead use this opportunity to reach more families.”

“And it will help the families, too, especially if they have to work during the day. They can come in and meet with a lot of different organizations at one event,” she added.

Participating organizations include: Kindred Healthcare, Home Instead Senior Care, ?Compass at Hopkinton, Care Solutions, ?Whittier Rehab Hospital, Comfort Zone Home Care, ?Salmon Health and Retirement , ?Pleasantries Adult Day Care, South County Physical Therapy, Always Best Care, Summit Elder Care, The Highlands, Bay Path Elder Services, Active Rx, Christopher Heights, ?Next Stage Associates, ?Right at Home, Aging Well Day Center, Seniors Helping Seniors , Metrowest SHINE, Elder Safe Technologies and the Westborough Fire Department.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the senior center at 508-366-3000.
