FSA Brings Annual Senior Expo to Earl Warren Showgrounds

Family Service Agency, a local nonprofit organization, is the new presenting sponsor for the Senior Expo of Santa Barbara, the county’s largest health and active aging fair.

Previously managed by Senior Programs of Santa Barbara, the 27th annual event will take place Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015.

“We are grateful to Senior Programs of Santa Barbara for this wonderful opportunity,” said Lisa Brabo, executive director of Family Service Agency. “With more than 90 exhibitors offering new and creative ways to meet the needs of seniors, family members and caregivers, this annual event is a tremendous resource for our community.”

More than 1,000 seniors attend the Senior Expo held at Earl Warren Showgrounds each year. The event offers low-cost flu shots, health assessments, information for active seniors looking for everything from new fitness programs to financial services, as well as tips for those who need assistance getting around safely and affordably.

Platinum sponsors for the 2015 Senior Expo include Family Service Agency, Cottage Health, Sansum Clinic, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care and Organic Soup Kitchen.

Additional sponsors include Sharon Kennedy Estate Management and Stevens & Associates Insurance as Gold Sponsors and Casa San Miguel, DASH (Doctors Assisting Seniors at Home), Home Care Assistance, the Oak Cottage of Santa Barbara and Union Bank as Silver Sponsors.

Exhibitors are encouraged to register quickly, because spaces are limited. 

Please visit or contact Expo Director Elizabeth Yingling at 805.963.0474 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
