The 12th Annual Orange Senior Health and Safety Fair that took place at High Plains Community Center this morning offered residents with lots of valuable information and resources, some of which they may not otherwise have been aware were available.

The Yale-New Haven Mammography Van was outside and anyone who did not have an appointment or  could not meet the requirements for their service were invited to complete a form and then come to Griffin Hospital for a FREE Mammogram and examination at a later date.

The Orange Visiting Nurse Association was on hand to give free blood pressure screenings and literature describing what they offer.

At 10:30 a.m. the Laughter Yoga group came onstage for a demonstration of their fun and unusual method of staying healthy and happy.

The Orange Police Department handed out informational sheets on how seniors can protect their personal information and about some of the scams geared toward senior citizens. They also had pens and key chains available for free.

The Orange Fire Marshal’s Office had smoke detectors and offered information about the free smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector installation service available to Orange residents.

Among the 36 vendor booths, there were places for hearing and vision, housing, the Case Memorial Library with all of its great services for seniors, Operation Fuel and so much more.

Cohen and Wolf P.C. sponsored lunches from 11 a.m. to noon, and Maplewood of Orange provided pastries.

The Senior Health and Safety Fair is a wonderful place to learn about all the available services in town and in the surrounding area.
