One of the biggest barriers to senior services is a lack of knowledge about
the services. To help promote the broad array of programs, events, and
classes provided for the area’s aging population by CVMC, here is
a virtual version of those presented at a Senior Resource Fair held Tuesday, May 5th at Valley Hills Mall. CVMC was a premier event sponsor and one of over
40 service organizations from around the region participating to help
inform seniors about relevant topics to enhance life in their later years.
CVMC Community Cancer Resource Center – our oncology team stresses the importance of early breast cancer
detection in seniors of both genders and offers resources for those diagnosed
with breast cancer.
CVMC Heart Services and
Primary Stroke Center – highly trained specialists from the key areas of stroke and cardiology
care will offer prevention, diagnoses (should this be “diagnosis”?..maybe
not) and treatment information.
CVMC Volunteering – Consider joining the hundreds of CVMC volunteers who share their
time and talents with staff and patients serving in a host of special
