Adults seeking health and wellness services for themselves or a loved one need look no further. Highlands Ranch Community Association and the Highlands Ranch Metro District are cohosting the sixth annual Adult Health and Information Fair from 9 a.m. to noon on Nov. 11 at Eastridge Recreation Center, 9568 S University Boulevard.
Formerly called the Senior Health and Information Fair, the event's name was changed to attract adults of all ages — a senior looking for handyman services, a child of an aging adult looking for caregiving resources or a community member seeking help for an older neighbor or friend.
Jamie Noebel, community relations manager of the Highlands Ranch Community Association, helps plan the event, but she attended for personal reasons two years ago. Her stepmother, who was 87 at the time, needed help with meals and doctors appointments. Noebel also looked into placing her in a facility after she fell.
“We didn't know if we were quite ready for a nursing home,” Noebel said. “When we had to move her in, we knew what to do.”
At the fair, 75 providers will share information about services and products that assist older adults or their families, including home care, adaptive equipment, Medicare, financial planning, pet care, nutrition and fitness and wellness screenings. New this year, Walgreens will provide a medication review for guests who bring their pharmaceuticals.
“A lot of times, adults have questions about the medicines they are taking, either prescription or over the counter,” said Jodie McCann, senior outreach coordinator of the metro district, who is instrumental in organizing the event.
Year round, McCann is the community's free resource for senior services. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-240-4922.
