Bassett Medical Center

October 17, 2017

Cooperstown, NY – The needs of seniors in Otsego County are significant, and yet help can sometimes be difficult to access easily in this largely rural county. For that reason, Bassett Medical Center is again holding a Senior Resource Fair Friday, Oct. 20, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lobby of the Clinic building on River Street in Cooperstown. Admission is free. The intent is simply to connect seniors with the resources they may need.

“We look at the common areas of interest among the seniors in our community and pull together the experts who can get them the answers they need on a variety of topics,” notes Barbara Tarka, Volunteer Coordinator. “We’ll have information on everything from medications, financial assistance for medications and home health equipment to skilled nursing care, home care for seniors, hospice, Alzheimer’s and many more.”

Among the organizations and agencies that will have staff on hand to answer questions at the Senior Resource Fair are:

  • At Home Care, Inc.,
  • Catskill Area Hospice & Palliative Care,
  • Bassett Hospital Clinical Nutrition,
  • NY Connect Long Term Care Coordinator,
  • Office of the Aging,
  • Bassett Hospital Trauma Unit,
  • Valley Health Services,
  • Bassett Audiology,
  • Free Blood Pressure Clinic.
