Kathi Ridner Director One Senior Place(Viera, FL)  March 7, 2016 – Viera-based One Senior Place, the Experts in Aging, will present the 10th Annual Senior Living Options Day on Friday, March 18th.   The extremely popular event will be held this year from Noon to 4:00 PM in the Wickham Park Community Center, 2815 Leisure Way in Melbourne.  During the free afternoon, Director of One Senior Place, Kathi Ridner will speak on “The Decision Tree — How to Choose the Right Place for YOU,” after which she will take questions from the audience.  Representatives from 17 different senior communities will be on hand throughout the afternoon and attendees will receive the One Senior Place “Parade of Senior Living” guide.  The guide covers topics such as “Care at Home Versus a Senior Living Community,” “Who Pays for Long Term Care?,” “Questions to Ask Before You Decide,” and much more.   The annual special event is a favorite with local seniors who can sample a broad selection of appetizers and entrees, collect numerous giveaways and win door prizes.  A panel of celebrity judges will determine the winner of the 2016 “Best Chef in Senior Living” competition, after tasting the entries provided by the chefs from the participating senior communities.  For more information, call One Senior Place, The Experts in Aging at (321) 751-6771 or contact them through their website at www.OneSeniorPlace.com.

One Senior Place Director, Kathi Ridner explains why the annual Senior Living Options Day is one of their most important events of the year.

“Most people begin retirement with the intention of living in their own home the rest of their lives,” said Ridner.  “But a health crisis or the death of a spouse will sometimes force an immediate decision for which they are not prepared.  At Senior Living Options Day, seniors and their families can compare many options in a single enjoyable afternoon.  So many people have attended the last few years that we decided to hold the 2016 event at the Wickham Park Community Center.”
