Seniors' Housing Forum

 

What is the Seniors’ Housing Forum?

The Seniors’ Housing Forum Planning Committee comprised of key community stakeholders, is presenting this one-day Seniors' Housing Forum for seniors, their families and caregivers, free of charge! The goal of the Forum is to educate participants about the range of housing options and community resources available for older adults and to guide individuals in planning appropriate future housing for themselves and/or significant others. This is the eleventh time the Seniors’ Housing Forum has been held, with participant attendance in past years ranging between 650-950 and 45+ exhibitors in attendance.
