Are you an older adult who is wondering whether to move out of your current home—but aren’t sure what the next step might be? Do you want to downsize and not have your “stuff” control you and your time? Or are you an adult child who wants to help your parents transition out of their home and into a more supportive living environment?

Find the answers to these and other questions at the Senior Housing Expo on Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The Hotel Ithaca (formerly the Holiday Inn) at 222 S. Cayuga St., Ithaca. The Expo will feature over 20 housing providers and facilities, as well as speakers about senior housing options and downsizing.
