Fauquier Hospital Hosts Community Senior Resource Fair

On Saturday, November 12, Fauquier Hospital will host an important event for anyone who is caring for an older loved one. The Community Senior Resource Fair will provide information on resources available in the community. Held in the Sycamore Room at Fauquier Hospital, the fair will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 12 noon.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet providers, gather information and ease the anxiety surrounding the decisions that need to be made as loved ones age.

Representatives from assisted living and long-term nursing facilities, home health care and in-home assistance agencies, and hospice and palliative care organizations will be on hand, as will wound care experts and cancer care professionals. Balance and blood pressure screenings will be offered, as well as medication information, ideas for home adaptations, and education on chronic kidney disease/dialysis treatment options.

Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Rebecca Wolfrey, RN, at 540-316-2482.
