“We want Oklahoma seniors and family caregivers to feel safe, valued and appreciated. We are excited about partnering with Tulsa Police Department’s Senior Services Unit to put a spotlight on the organizations, programs and services that exist to help seniors stay active, involved and healthy. Our goal is to help seniors live their best life!” says Mike Fogle, LIFE Senior Services COO.

The event will feature more than 150 exhibitors offering information about active aging, caregiver support services, money management and investments, Medicare options and VA benefits, mental and behavioral health services, accessibility and rehabilitation services, durable medical equipment, travel clubs, housing, home health and so much more!
