Miramar intensifies support for elderly residents with free services

Miramar, Florida – The City of Miramar has intensified its commitment to the elderly community. It is offering a comprehensive set of free services for residents aged 60 and over, aiming to enhance their well-being.

As detailed in a recent official statement, these services encompass blood pressure evaluations, guidelines on fall prevention, general health assessments, transportation for medical visits, assistance with end-of-life arrangements, insights on scams and fraud deterrence, and more.

On the 9th of September, the Multi-service Complex, situated at 6700 Miramar Parkway, will be the venue for the Senior Resource Fair and Food Distribution event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This event, championed by Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis, provides seniors with an overview of the complimentary services at their disposal. Farm Share Inc., an organization with a three-decade legacy of facilitating vital food provisions, will oversee the event’s food distribution.

The occasion will feature over 40 vendors, each poised to showcase a diverse array of services. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with delegates from several entities such as Humana, Minority Builders Association, Legal Aid, In-Tune Health, and CarePlus, to name a few.

Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis has extended an invitation to the elderly community, emphasizing the city’s unwavering dedication to their welfare.

“Our ethos is deeply rooted in our reverence and appreciation for our seniors. They have been our pillars, and it’s incumbent upon us to ensure their comfort and safety. I encourage all our senior residents to acquaint themselves with the services the city has curated for them,” remarked Davis.

Moreover, seniors seeking more than just essential services can consider joining one of Miramar’s two specialized centers. These establishments proffer a myriad of advantages, including travel affiliations, retail excursions, and even Casino/Bingo evenings, fostering an atmosphere for social interaction and leisurely activities.
