Californias Senior Expo – Fullerton October 11th 2014

We wish to invite NOCSC to the 2014 California Seniors Expo at the Fullerton YMCA on Saturday, October 11th.

For all seniors seeking ways to live fuller happier lives, California Seniors Expo is the place to go. Meet professionals who will help you transition seamlessly through the best phase of your life. The Expo will provide “one-stop-shopping” for older adults, their families and caregivers looking to connect with valuable local resources.

At the California Seniors Expo, you can learn and explore options available in comfort living, housing, medical programs, leisure activities, community and government services, healthy living, and much more! Admission and parking are free.

FREE MEDICATION COLLECTION One of the events at the Expo is a medication collection. We ask the community to clean out their medicine cabinets and bring all of their expired and unwanted medications for safe free disposal.

FREE HEALTH SCREENINGS Our friends at Walgreens Pharmacy will be at the Expo providing free heath screens and offering flu shots at the Expo.

FREE DOCUMENT SHREDDING In continuing efforts to help prevent identity theft, we are hosting free document shredding at the Expo. We ask our seniors to bring all of their sensitive documents such as old tax returns, medical records, financial records, etc. for safe on-site shredding.

Advance Care Planning Training Dates Community Instructor Training & Certification

Dear Collaborative Members & Visitors:

One of the kindest gifts that you can give to your clients and patients is to help facilitate their completion of an Advance Health Care Directive which designates an individual to speak for them if they are unable to communicate in critical medical decisions.  Advance Directives:

  • Eliminate the shock and ambiguity thrust upon family in medical emergencies when they are often required to make critical decisions for a loved one without a clear statement of that person’s desires
  • Allow for decisions ranging from  “Prolong my life as long as possible . . .” to “Don’t prolong my life if . . .”
  • Are easily cancelled and revised and are simply a clear statement to family and medical community of what the individual wants to have happen in case they can’t speak for themselves.

Come learn to facilitate, interact, deliberate and make decisions about an issue not easy for many of us to deal with.   NOCSC is proud to offer in collaboration with several other agencies the follow training:
