According to U.S. Census Data, there are more than 45,000 seniors residing within Rockland County alone. This amounts to nearly 15% of the county's total residential population.
Today Senator David Carlucci teamed up with Rockland Community College to host their third annual Senior Fair at the College. The Senior Fair was a unique opportunity for senior citizens to learn about new opportunities related to healthcare services, recreational and educational programming, non-profit assistance, financial services, and more.
This event allowed seniors to continue aging-in-place while taking advantage of the community-based services that make independent living possible
This year over 100 vendors attended the event as well as a full list of speakers including the Nathan Kline Institute and the Rockland County Sheriff's office.
