Kindred at Home spokesperson Deanna Allen said the health fair held earlier this month at Hempstead Hall was a success and she hopes next year will even be better.

Close to 100 senior citizens participated in the health fair according to Allen. Fifteen artery scans were completed.

“ And of those who participated every one learned of  health issues that they did not know before their exams,” Allen said.

“ This year was a success and we could not have done it without the help from the different Hope organizations.”

Allen said Kindred is extremely grateful for all those who offered their services to help the local seniors.

The  Central Arkansas Development Council donated transportation which is normally 3$ per ride. University of Arkansas at Hope Nursing Program performed the lab draws .Wadley Scan donated 15 screenings. Others who helped include The Hope Lions Club, the Hope Civitan Club, Senior Care Marketing Alliance and State Rep. Danny Watson. Watson spoke to the seniors warning them of identity theft scams.

” We feel this was a success because we had more participation than in the past and just could not have done without those who partnered to help,” Allen said on behalf Kindred Home Health.
