As part of the 2016 Platte County Senior Health Fair & Caregiver Expo, representatives from Neptune Society Kansas City, MO will be providing seniors with information about late-life care, services, and benefits. Neptune Society will be present at both the north (Platte County Community Center North) and south (Riverside Community Center) Platte County Senior Health Fairs from 8:30am to 11:00am on Thursday, September 22 and Thursday, September 29, respectively, to ensure all families in their community have the opportunity to learn about available cremation options.
“It is important to be out in the community making people aware of the Neptune Society and what we offer,” service manager of Neptune Society Kansas City Julie Walter-Davis said.
Visitors to Neptune Society’s table will be greeted by a representative and offered healthy snacks and brochures of information for seniors. They will also host a raffle for a “Snuggle in for the Winter” gift basket that includes soup, crackers, a DVD, a blanket, and a few cookies for dessert.
The 2016 Platte County Senior Health Fair & Caregiver Expo is a gathering of community leaders providing information and services to seniors and their caregivers. With live entertainment, food, door prizes, and 70 exhibitors there will be opportunities for seniors to learn about all aspects of their health and to discover new ways to stay healthy for many years to come.
Some small services will also be provided at the Senior Health Fair & Caregiver Expo, including caregiver support information, flu shots, acupressure, blood pressure checks, bone density analysis, veteran information, slip and fall prevention tips, and balance screenings.
For those who live too far away to go to this event or for those who are looking for information about senior health and caregiver assistance, Neptune Society offers a comprehensive library of articles pertaining to important senior issues including life insurance, grief assistance, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, funeral planning, cremation, and other topics. With frequent updates, Neptune Society hopes to inform the communities it supports about how to plan for their futures.
In addition to offering seniors and caregivers information about their health and well-being in community events like the Platte County Senior Health Fair and Caregiver Expo, Neptune Society also helps families through the planning process for cremation services. The local staff is dedicated to providing quality and respectful service to the families they serve and the loved ones in their care. Services are provided for both those planning for a loved one who recently passed away and those who wish to clarify their own wishes for cremation services.
