The purpose of the Senior Resource Summit is to bring awareness and provide information to our growing senior citizen population, their family members and caregivers. “Whether you are planning for your future, dealing with the many challenges of getting older, helping a senior family member or someone else, come join us for a wealth of information and resources to help empower you and your famil.

Two panels of experts will be available to discuss and share information designed to enable seniors and their family members to better understand the scope of services provided by area agencies and organizations.
The first panel will begin promptly at 10:45 a.m. and will consist of expert panelists to answer questions related to aging in the Greater Charleston area. The second panel will be at 12:45 p.m. and will focus on different ways the Town of Mount Pleasant works to assist the aging population. Each panel will be approximately one hour and will include a question and answer segment.

More than 40 service providers will be available throughout the day to provide information and educational exhibits. They will cover topics ranging from affordable housing, retirement communities, non-medical homecare, home health, hospice, transportation, legal, financial services, senior employment, home repairs/transitions, VA resources, and much more.
