Stratford – State Senator Kevin C. Kelly (R-Stratford) and State Representatives Laura Hoydick (R-Stratford) and Larry Miller (R-Stratford) hosted a health and wellness fair for seniors in partnership with the Stratford Baldwin Center on Wednesday, June 26th.

“Each year, I am proud to host this important event connecting seniors with state and local resources to remain independent and help them age in place,” said Senator Kelly. “We must make sure that our state maintains the quality and accessibility of our health care system. Seniors in Stratford and throughout our state deserve to know how they can access these important services, and I would like to thank the many vendors who took part in this remarkable event.”

State and local organizations and volunteers provided attendees with health screenings and information about programs available to seniors related to health, wellness, legal issues, financial services and more.

“There are many options available to our seniors,” said Rep. Hoydick. “Events like this one are essential to providing easy access to organizations and personnel that can provide these services all in one event at one location. I was pleased to once again be a part of this great event.”

“This event was a fun way to ensure that all our local seniors have additional opportunities to see the large number of excellent resources available to them,” said Rep. Miller. “Seniors today have many concerns from health care to finances, and we had on hand experts in every field to answer questions and offer assistance in all of them. I am confident that those who attended took away helpful information, and maybe learned about a new policy or program that can help them.”
