Senior Resource Fair for Social Workers @ Touro
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CST)
Good News and Better News!
The good news! Due to popular demand, the Senior Resource Guide is hosting a Senior Resource Fair for Social Workers at Touro Infirmary: 2nd Floor, President's Room. We've heard that it has become practically impossible for marketers to speak with the social workers at this hospital. Well, your prayers have been answered, and we're on for Wednesday, February 12, 2014 from 5:00-7:00pm!
The better news! In a constant effort to improve the Senior Resource Fairs, this event will be catered! Vendors will no longer be responsible for bringing a food or beverage item. Vendors need only bring their promotional materials, tablecloths, and a door prize (valued at $25 or more).
SOCIAL WORKERS - Information about the Senior Resource Fair
UP TO 35 DOOR PRIZES FOR SOCIAL WORKERS!
The Senior Resource Fair is an opportunity for you to "earn as you learn!" A variety of vendors will be on hand to share information with you about their products and services for the elderly. You will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with them and receive 1.5 FREE CEUs (NASW Approved) in the process. Discharge Planners and Case Managers are welcome to attend also, but do not receive credit. There may be representatives from the following types of companies:
Home Health Agencies ~ Homemaker & Companion Agencies ~ Hospices
Adult Day Health Care Programs ~ Senior Centers ~ Senior Organizations
Senior Housing Facilities ~ Area Agencies on Aging ~ Senior Health Clinics
Wellness & Fitness Programs ~ Rehabilitation Services ~ Elder Law Attorneys
Mental Health & Counseling Providers ~ Reverse Mortgage Specialists
Attendees are interested in learning what's new in services and products available to their elderly patients. This is your chance to build relationships as you share your expertise and educational materials with them. You will meet established and potential clients and referral sources in a friendly and receptive atmosphere where they anticipate hearing about your company, products, points of interest and services.
Space is limited. No walk-ins on the day of the event!
Set-up begins promptly at 4:30pm. Check-in at the registration table for your table assignment.
- No free-standing or table-top displays! Just bring collaterals and educational materials. Please bring a tablecloth. Tables and chairs will be provided.
- How it works: When the Resource Fair begins, attendees will visit your booth, at which time you will give your spiel, and then put your initials next to your company name on their sign-off sheet.
Please spread the word to as many social workers as you know in the Greater New Orleans area to ensure the success of the event!
