MEDFORD, Ore--- About 3,000 people went to this year's ACCESS Senior Fair. More than 80 vendors were at the Medford Armory Tuesday afternoon giving out information about the various resources available to seniors in the Rogue Valley. Glenda Holway was just one of those 3,000 in attendance.
"I learned about planning for my funeral which is important," Holway said. "It was the first booth I stopped at and they were very helpful. I don't want to leave expenses for my children."
ACCESS called the fair the one-stop shop for everything a senior citizen needs for healthy living.
"It's very necessary," said ACCESS's Development Coordinator Logan Bell. "[Seniors are] the fastest growing demographic in the valley. All of the baby boomers and coming here. Everyone wants to live in the valley and we have a lot of services that are available."
One of those 80 vendors in the room was Higs Gym. The gym offers a boxing class specifically for seniors. It also teaches a class called Rock Steady Boxing. It's for those living with Parkinson's Disease.
"Boxing deals with a lot of the things that they struggle with daily which is timing, reaction, control over their bodies so a typical boxer's work out is extremely beneficial for anyone with Parkinson's," said instructor Kim Adams.
