For the past ten years, the Senior Connection’s twice-yearly “Senior & Caregivers Conference & Expos” have been a valuable resource for hundreds of seniors and family caregivers in need of information and assistance for themselves or their aging loved ones. The upcoming fall Expo will be no exception.
However, with the health and well-being of seniors and caregivers in mind, the event will be held virtually via a special Expo website, allowing you to attend from the comfort and safety of your own home. The website will be activated Friday, October 16, at 10am and remain active for a full week. With ease of use in mind, there’s no need to register or log in, and no App required.
Similar to previous on-site Expos, you’ll be able to “visit” each booth and learn about the company’s products and services by watching a 30-second or 5-minute video featuring the same friendly faces you would meet if you visited their booth in person. You’ll also be able to print out a copy of their business card and company brochure. At the “Welcome” booth you can learn about the free resources the Senior Connection offers seniors and family caregivers year-round.
Participating companies represent services such as Medical and Non-Medical In-Home Care, Independent, Assisted Living & Memory Care, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Healthcare, Alzheimer’s Disease, Emotional Support and Counseling, Respite Care, Fiduciary, Legal, Financial, Insurance, Hospice, Funeral Planning, Transportation and more.
In addition to visiting the booths, you’ll also be able to go to the “Stage” and watch educational presentations on subjects relating to the challenges of being a senior or caregiver. Topics include: “Maintaining Compassion for Loved Ones During Difficult Times” by Pamela Cregger; “Sensory Stimulation: The Subtle Clues to Developing Memory Loss” by Sam Downing, MD; “Defending Against Viral Attack” by Wayne Bennett, DC; “How Our Nervous System Affects Our Ability to Cope” by Susan Drysdale, PhD; “IRA Trusts & the new Secure Act – Retirement Planning” by Chip McLaughlin, P.C.
The website address is SeniorConnectionExpo.us/V-Expo and we look forward to “seeing” you there. For more information or to be added to the Senior Connection’s notification list, contact Debbie at Debbie@SeniorConnection.us or call (928) 778-3747.
