Community Resource Fair

Featured Speaker Dr. Dara Schwartz,
Lead Clinical Psychologist at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital

What is the difference between being alone and loneliness?

How can we distinguish between forgetfulness and dementia?

What does it look like to take care of our mental health as we age?

The science and data are very clear: social isolation is one of the most dangerous risk factors affecting older adults. But as we age, maintaining social connections and prioritizing our mental wellness can often get put on the backburner. Join us for an inspiring community event to discover how we can age with resilience.

We’ll discuss:

  • Common myths about aging.
  • How loneliness and dementia affect the aging process.
  • The impact of mental health challenges on caregivers.
  • Easy tips on how to stay mentally strong as we get older.

Community resource fair and featured speaker event are free and open to the public.
