Maine has the highest percentage of older adults in the country; and the Mid Coast 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 the community.

The Expo provides an 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. In addition to providing a link between consumers and providers, this gathering also encourages networking within the community, thereby strengthening the value of products and service. For more information visit or call (207) 729-0757.
