Sept. 4 HRRC Expo for seniors and their families
The Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) is hosting its first annual Senior Expo. This event, sponsored in cooperation with the Cleveland Heights Office on Aging, will provide information to help seniors adjust to changes in income, emerging physical limitations, and home maintenance challenges.
The event encourages seniors to bring their questions to the Expo, which will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Senior Activity Center at the Cleveland Heights Community Center, 1 Monticello Blvd. Admission is free, and the Expo is open to residents of all communities.
The Senior Expo will provide information on various issues of concern to seniors. By listening to presentations and visiting advice tables, seniors and their families can get advice in a non-pressured setting on the choices homeowners may need to make as they age. Experts will provide information on home repairs (home maintenance, getting bids and choosing a contractor, improving accessibility); housing options (assisted living, independent living, home care, moving options); and money management (credit and budgeting, refinancing, using your home’s equity).
Home Repair Resource Center is a nonprofit that has been serving the community for more than 40 years. For more information about the Senior Expo and other services for seniors, visit www.hrrc-ch.org, or call 216-381-6100.
Allison Urbanek is the financial programs coordinator at HRRC and enjoys working one on one with residents to solve home repair problems.
