Centennial planning fair for seniors

April 2, 2018 by  

The Arapahoe Libraries, working with the Centennial Senior Commission, will soon host a senior resource fair.

The event will give residents an opportunity to learn about issues that are important to them, and to their caregivers. A separate presentation is planned to discuss the Meals on Wheels program, and some of the myths about it.

There will be a number of participants who bring specialized knowledge about seniors’ concerns with them. They include crime prevention experts, specialists in the physical difficulties commonly faced by seniors, and those who can help solve seniors’ transportation needs. There are also experts in providing library services to those who are homebound.

The experts slated to attend are the Aging Well Resource Center, TLC Meals on Wheels, the Colorado Talking Book Library, a representative from the Denver Regional Mobility and Access Council (DRMAC), the Senior Services Librarian from the Arapahoe Library District, a representative from the Arapahoe County Council on Aging, the Centennial Senior Commission, and the Colorado Alzheimer’s Association. There will also be an expert from the District Attorney’s office to discuss consumer fraud protection.

The fair is scheduled for this Friday, April 6, from 10:00 am until noon, with the talk about Meals on Wheels taking place earlier, from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. The venue is the Koelbel Library on Holly Street.

Events like this offer so much information it can be confusing, so organizers might work with a flyer printing company to list speakers and resources.
