Weston Retirement Life Styles Fair a Success

March 28, 2013

Hartford, CT – State Senator Toni Boucher (R-Wilton) participated in the Weston retirement life style fair on Saturday March 23, at the Norfield Church Parish Hall. Sen. Boucher presented an informative mini-lecture addressing issues such as financing your retirement years, making your home a safe haven and navigating insurance options.

“Informed planning is crucial to enjoying a safe and comfortable retirement,” said Sen. Boucher.

Questions discussed at the fair included:

  • Can I afford retirement?
  • Where will I retire? At home or elsewhere?
  • Who will take care of me?
  • What are my choices in assisted living or home care?
  • How will I pay my medical expenses?
  • How do I get around when I cannot drive?
  • What about my physical safety at home?
  • What help is there locally or from the State?
  • What recreational, volunteer, or social opportunities are there for me in retirement?”

Over twenty exhibitors serving the needs of the older population across southwestern Connecticut were present to answer questions about how to retire with dignity and in comfort.

The Fair was a unique opportunity for anyone planning retirement for themselves or loved ones, and for those already in retirement, to learn about available community resources and options for their future. The fair was organized by the Friends of the Weston Senior Activities Center and co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Weston, the Norfield Congregational Church of Weston, and the Fairfield County Bank.
