Calling All Veterans Day

Calling All Veterans Day is an opportunity to receive information on resources and benefits from over 100 vendors that will empower independent aging for Veterans, their spouses or their aging parents. Breakout sessions throughout the event will provide meaningful information to attendees. This is an opportunity for the community members to gather information and resources that empower their own independent aging.

An opportunity for over 9,000 WWII, Korean Veterans and their families, to learn what resources are available for themselves and their spouses to age independently.

Enabling our 21,000 Vietnam Veterans to learn what regulations and benefits have been changed and updated since they returned home. Many will find they are now eligible for more services than they might expect.

Our younger Veterans,- 15,000+ Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn, and Operation Enduring Freedom Veterans are returning home and finding themselves in the role of caregiver for aging parents.  Calling All Veterans Day is an opportunity for younger Veterans to learn about information and resources available to assist them as caregivers for aging parents.

Calling All Veterans Day is also an opportunity for our community to come together to support organizations that make sure our Veterans are not aging alone, in need of friendship, comradery or support.  There will be multiple organizations present that are seeking volunteers.

Veterans signed on to allow us to live free and at ease. We owe them everything we can give to ensure their life after service is one to be enjoyed with freedom and ease. RI Elder Info’s way of doing that is by sharing our expertise in aging resources.
