Family Home Agency Sponsors Fifty and Better Health Fair

10.19.2015

This month, we had the opportunity to be sponsors of the Fifty and Better Health Fair in Riverside, California. Our participation helped the Janet Goeske Foundation provide valuable services and general information for community members aged 50+. The Fifty and Better Health Fair provided seniors with the resources needed to live the longest, healthiest lives possible. During this event, attendees were able to access free high quality health screenings, useful information and education that is essential for maintaining a great quality of life. Other highlights of the event included free healthcare such as flu/pneumonia shots, Glaucoma testing, CPR training, as well as free ID photos with information such as medications, allergies and important emergency contacts. Alongside California MENTOR, the Riverside County Fire Department, Adopt-A-Pet and AARP were sponsors of the event providing additional goods and services.

California MENTOR’s Family Home Agency team was able to share the many resources we provide to individuals with special needs. Seniors were excited to hear about our program and that by welcoming an adult with special needs into their home, they are able to make an extra income and make a difference in someone’s life.

Maria Mora, a Recruiter for California MENTOR’s FHA stated, “We were warmly welcomed to the event and we were pleased to be recognized by people in the community from other events we had hosted. There was such a great turn out, it was a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness for the individuals we serve and the services we offer to the special needs community.” With over 2,600 attendees, it was an honor to be part of an event where people were encouraged to be 50, Fit, and Loving It!
