The Jewish Home Family’s Gallen Day Center hosts a technology expo on Sunday, October 8. It will focus on the ways technology can assist with vibrant aging, enhancing life for seniors and their loved ones.
The expo will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the Gallen Center, on the campus of the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, 10 Link Drive in Rockleigh.
