We were delighted to welcome our sponsors for the evening who all gave a short overview of the services they offer. They all had displays where it was possible to chat with them and collect additional information.

Tim Turcotte and Rebecca MacCallum with “Heart to Home Meals” provided information on the huge variety of meal options they have available for those who find preparing meals themselves too much of a challenge.

Sherri Moro of Sutton Quantum Realty is an expert on the home ownership issues facing people as they age. At this meeting she offered information on “Sell’n Stay” which is an option for those wishing to stay in their own home without the issues of home ownership. This is a completely different option to a reverse mortgage.
