Seniors receive information at annual health care expo

Booths providing information and speakers who gave seniors facts about everything from knee and hip replacements to preventing fires in their homes filled the Worley Seminar Center Friday when the Center for Creative Living its Senior Health & Wellness Expo.

At least 40 booths were set up in the hallways and meeting room to provide information pertaining to seniors and making their lives better. Several hospices were represented, as were assisted-living centers. Medical equipment and shoes were also on display. There was also a mobile dog groomer who was examining dogs, cutting their nails and offering shots.

"I came out to get my dogs checked out and to get some new information," Lesa Layton said. "I have enjoyed listening to the speakers and have learned a lot."

"It's wonderful to be here," Rob Rooker said. "We are here with the local Parkinson's Support Group and we are glad we can inform people what resources are available here in Lawton."

"We are set up today in hopes of reaching people who have Parkinson's and to help their families if they need any assistance," Tori Andrade said.
