Pierce County is rich with resources for aging adults and the “Making the Link” annual event highlights the multitude of organizations and businesses who cater to that demographic.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 17, more than 70 exhibitors who specialize in many forms of elderly care — in-home care, assisted and skilled nursing facilities, elder law, equipment providers, healthcare insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, caregiving, emergency assistance, social service agencies, transportation providers, funeral services, and more — will be on-hand to provide information and resources.

The event is free and open to the public, but is primarily targeted toward healthcare professionals, social workers and case managers, and volunteers who work with the elderly and people with disabilities.

Making the Link will be held at the MetroParks STAR Center at 3873 S. 66th, Tacoma.
