On Friday, November 4, 2002, the Willowbrook Senior Center hosted a Fall Prevention Summit Wellness and Resource Fair. There were about forty other organizations and over 100 seniors in attendance at the outdoor event. Partners’ donated two cases of water to be distributed during the Resource Fair.
In attendance were Aloyce Rachal, Senior Director of Health Services, Dalila Perdoma, Supervisor Care Manager, and Erika Ramirez, Community Linkages Specialist. They shared information on Partners’ Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) and Community Wellness Workshops. Those in attendance collected brochures about MSSP and asked questions about the types of services offered. Dalila spoke to interested individuals about services offered through MSSP, and Aloyce and Erika spoke to organizations about conducting in-service presentations to set up a referral system for their senior members.
Aloyce made a short presentation about MSSP and services offered with the seniors in attendance which led to a line at the Partner’s in Care Foundation table of individual who had questions and wanted informational materials.
