Participants will include representatives from home health care agencies, pharmacies, dentists offices and more.
The various things that seniors need, said Mildred Endsley, a senior care advocate for Primecare Home Care Services, which is helping sponsor the event.
The aim, she said, is for seniors to prepare and be proactive about their health care needs.
