The Senior Expo will shed light on financial as well as health risks many seniors encounter. MORe’s Senior Services Committee co-chair Kathryn Hoffman shares, “With my experience as a senior real estate specialist, I think it is highly important that we educate seniors on how to recognize scams and what they can do along with their family to guard against it. It is also critical to spread awareness on how clutter can be one of the biggest health hazards for seniors and that the simple lifestyle change of decluttering can be ultimately beneficial for them in the long run.”
