About Caring Community Advocates – Caring Community Advocates is a group of area service providers working under the auspices of the Oswego County Rural Health Network.
Recently the group conducted a survey campaign to identify what was important to the aging population in regards to social needs, nutritional education, health/wellness needs, financial information and medical resources.
The group evaluated responses to the surveys and decided to bring the most sought after needs to the senior population across the county in a fun and informative format – “The Senior Roadshow.”
