This Friday, June 17, WBSM will broadcast live from the Bristol Plymouth Celebration of Seniors conference at White’s of Westport.
The conference returns after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions. It is organized by the Bristol County Attorney’s Office, Thomas Quinn, and the City of Rochester Council on Aging and Coastal Seniors Services.
The event is free and open to the public. It starts at 9 am, with a free breakfast for all attendees.
“(It will be) a one-stop-shop for any senior, caretaker or loved one to get the important information they need to protect and care for a senior,” DA Quinn’s office said.
There will be over 60 providers providing resources for seniors and many speakers such as DA Quinn, Taryn Lee-Turgeon from the Executive Office of Seniors Affairs, Mark Wagoner from Commonwealth Care Alliance, Deb Daviau from NaviCare-Fallon Health Care and lawyer Jane. Sullivan, an expert in the field of estate planning and elder law. The oral part should take place from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
DA Quinn has made elder issues a priority of his tenure, establishing a unit upon taking office in 2015 dedicated to the prevention, prosecution and investigation of elder abuse and financial exploitation.
“The unit is made up of expert investigators and prosecutors who have undertaken complex elder financial abuse investigations that require more than just a police detective to solve,” the prosecutor’s office said.
WBSM will be streaming live throughout the conference on The Tim Weisberg Show. Tune in to 1420 AM, 99.5 FM, wbsm.com and the WBSM app.
