We are happy to say that we are still getting calls and emails from people who attended the Southern Maine Senior Expo on September 25. People were thrilled with the information and resources that were available to them. A highlight was the speaker schedule that included hour long educational sessions on everything from female incontinence to estate planning. Dr. Laurel Coleman, a geriatric and Alzheimer’s specialist from Maine Medical Center, ended the speaker’s sessions with a discussion on navigating the healthcare system for someone with dementia.
We had 8,500 views on our facebook posts! Check out our FaceBook page to see some of the pictures and discussions. Nelly Hall of CS Boutique had a very busy booth all day, spoke at two seminars, and still managed to get an interview on MPBN! We also raised $120 for the Alzheimer’s Association through the antique appraisals; thank you Stan Lourie!
Thanks very much to all who attended. exhibited, and helped with organization. We look forward to working with you again sooon!
Karen Vachon of Insphere Insurance passed out alphabet soup. She wanted to help people “make sense of the mix of letters that make up Medicare insurance options.”
Falmouth Hearing Aids presented an informative session on Heathy Hearing, and ran inner ear checks all day at their booth.
Advantage Home Care, a Southern Maine Senior Expo sponsor, brought Darlene Field in to give a two hour training session on Dementia. (Left) Darlene talked and taught about advances in caring for people with dementia, both at home and in a care community.
It was a glorious fall day, and over 650 people attended the Senior Expo. Many took the opportunity to sit and bask in the sun in the beautiful courtyard of the Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport, perhaps while waiting for their free Carousel Horse Farm carriage ride around the park!
