Veterans’ Resource Fair to Be Held at Hunterdon Medical Center

October 2, 2017

Hunterdon Hospice and the Hunterdon County Division of Senior, Disability, and Veterans Services salute our servicemen and women. Thank you for your service and “Welcome Home!” to recently returning veterans. We know that sometimes the readjustment to civilian life from the military can be stressful for you and your families. There is so much to think about and sometimes you don’t know where to turn for help and guidance.  Hunterdon Hospice and the Hunterdon County Division of Senior, Disability, and Veterans Services will host a Veterans’ Resource Fair on Saturday, November 4th at Hunterdon Medical Center from 10:00 a.m.to 1:00 p.m.

Features of the day include a Presentation of Colors by the Sea Cadets, playing of the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance led by World War II Veteran Archie Fagan. The Hunterdon Harmonizers will also entertain everyone during the opening ceremony.

Over 20 organizations dedicated to assisting veterans and their families will be on-site to discuss supportive services and programs. One beneficial aspect offered will be an on-site VA Claims Clinic. Breakout Sessions will include:

10:30-11:00 a.m. – VA Benefits with Frank Quadrino, VA Hospital

11:00 a.m. – Yoga for your health with Ken Doyle. Bring a yoga mat, if you have one.

11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – Veterans Aging with Dementia and PTSD, presented by Linda Bryant, Director, Center for Healthy Aging, Hunterdon Healthcare and Michael Berman, VA Psychologist

11:30 a.m.- Noon – Legal Issues – What Veterans Need to Know, presented by the Hunterdon County Bar Association

Veterans will be able to speak with well-informed representatives from all of the organizations on-site.  Veterans and their families attending the fair will discover a wealth of information on health services, housing, education, jobs, transportation businesses that promote hiring veterans, local business that offer discounts to veterans, VA benefits and much more!

Come and spend the day with us and get caught up and “plugged in” to these all-important and vital services and benefits to which you, as a veteran may be entitled.
