With God all things are possible and it is by the Grace of God that I welcome you to the 3rd Annual Caring for the Caregiver Expo which kicks off National Caregivers Month. My heart is so full of love, gratitude and appreciation for the support and participation of this year’s Presenting Sponsor the Franklin County Office on Aging and all of the Sponsors, Exhibitors, Vendors, Staff and Volunteers here today.

Franklin County Office on Aging is a perfect partner and has supported the Caring for the Caregiver Expo since its inaugural event in 2019. Franklin County Office on Aging provides centralized access to diverse programs and individualized services for older adults, dependent adults, and their families so they can preserve their independence and stay in their own home. Franklin County residents aged 60 and older can access various programs and services through the agency, as well as support services for caregivers and kinship families, including adult day services, durable medical equipment, caregiver counseling and more.

I am also very excited to announce that we expanded the Caring for the Caregiver Expo to Toledo, Ohio held on October 29th at the Glass City Convention Center. I offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to our Toledo City Host Rich and Deb Hogan, owners of “The Juice” FM 107.3 WJUC for their commitment and hard work in making the Inaugural Toledo Caring for the Caregiver Expo an overwhelming success.

Today, as you slow down, relax, refresh, rejuvenate, fellowship and receive important information and resources, we ask that you support all the Sponsors, Exhibitors and Vendors by visiting their booths, participating in the pampering room, the get fit and healthy room, and the lunch and learn sessions available today.

Lastly, I offer my heartfelt “Thanks” to my Family who is always there to support me, the Ohio Sickle Cell and Health Association, Franklin County Office on Aging, Faith Ministries Church, all of our exhibitors, vendors, volunteers, staff and Caregivers, for your help, assistance, prayers, love and support in hosting the 3rd Annual Caring for the Caregiver Expo.

We give all Glory and Honor to God and we wish each of you continued Miracles and Blessings!
