Latonya Brown, the Orange County Department on Aging's resource and benefits specialist, announced plans for the third annual Resource Connections Fair. This year's fair, themed "Live well, Laugh often, Love much," will be held Wednesday, March 23, at the University Mall in Chapel Hill. The four-hour event will begin at 10 a.m. and features more than 50 agencies and specialists seeking to improve and enrich the lives of local older adults.
"The fair will provide important tools to help seniors and their families gain information on how to become motivated and empowered to take charge of their lives," Brown said.
Specialists will be on-site to provide wellness screenings, professional insight and expert advice on such issues as assisted living, Alzheimer's disease, Medicare system navigation, financial counseling and legal planning. Steve Toll—a well-known, classically trained and versatile local musician—is just one of several sources of entertainment scheduled. Free refreshments will be provided, and a raffle will offer the opportunity to win some great prizes.
