The ninth annual People Plus Senior Health Expo in Brunswick will be held this year with an “At Home” version kicking off on Tuesday, Nov. 10. The Expo gives attendees the opportunity to learn what services are available in the Midcoast region to live a longer, healthier life.
Despite COVID-19, People Plus is not taking a break this year. The event has been reimagined and will come to you in your home online and via video! In these unprecedented times, the goal is to continue to connect seniors with critical services. This is important now more than ever, as seniors are staying close to home. The Expo “At Home” will launch on Nov. 10 with online videos from sponsors and exhibitors. Videos can be found on the People Plus website. Facebook live events will occur during the day on the PeoplePlusMaine Facebook page.
This event is made possible by the support of Lead Partners, Coastal Landing Retirement Community and Mid Coast-Parkview Health, and additional Partners Bangor Savings Bank, Bill Dodge Auto Group, Spectrum Generations and The Times Record. Sponsors include Avita of Brunswick/Sunnybrook, Brackett Funeral Home, Bridges Home Services, Healthy Living for ME, Norway Savings Bank, Riley Insurance, and The Highlands along with Bar Harbor Bank and Trust.
Maine has the highest percentage of older adults in the country; and the Midcoast is where this population is growing the fastest. The People Plus Senior Health Expo brings together a variety of resources for this increasingly important segment of our community. The Expo provides an excellent opportunity to learn about products and services in the categories of medical services, fitness and health, technology, legal, community services, housing/respite care, and finance.
“I learned that by the year 2025, one-quarter of Maine’s population will be over age 65,” said People Plus Executive Director Stacy Frizzle. “Our job is to connect all those residents with the area service providers and the Expo is the perfect place to do it. And with seniors staying at home this year, connecting them with needed services is even more important.”
