Free Senior Resource Fair

October 1, 2014

With over 11,000 people 60 years of age and older living in Otsego County, the needs of seniors 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 Wednesday, October 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lobby of the Clinic building on River Street in Cooperstown. There is no admission fee. The intent is simply to connect seniors with the resources they may need.

“We look at the common areas of interest among our seniors and pull together the folks who can get them the answers they need on a variety of topics,” notes Kara Travis, senior director of Patient Services for Bassett. “We’ll have experts available on everything from blood pressure and nutrition to financial assistance, home health equipment, skilled nursing care and home care.”

Among the organizations and agencies that will be on hand at the Senior Resource Fair are:

  • Bassett Blood Pressure Clinic
  • Bassett Social Work Department
  • Bassett Volunteer Office
  • First Community Care of Bassett 
  • Valley Health Services, skilled nursing and cardiac rehabilitation
  • Bassett Dietitians
  • Bassett Physical Therapy Department
  • Fox Hospital Adult Day Care Program
  • Catskill Area Hospice & Palliative Care
  • Bassett Pastoral Care Program
  • Office of the Aging, Otsego County
  • Diabetic Management
