ASCENSION PARISH, La (NBC33) — Senior citizens got some important information that could help save their lives.
The annual SALT Expo was held at the Gonzales Civic Center on Tuesday. SALT stands for Seniors and Lawmen Together.
Seniors from across Ascension Parish learned about crime prevention and healthcare from companies like Home Healthcare and several hospice vendors.
"They're going to learn that there is help available no matter what they need it for: healthcare, crime prevention, or how to better take care of themselves," stated Jean Bourgeois with SALT.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office also provided the more than 300 senior citizens with a free Thanksgiving meal.
