The People Plus Senior Health Expo will return to an in-person event this year, set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Brunswick Recreation Center. Admission is free and the first 400 people at the event will get a free bag of gifts.

Free activities, information and entertainment will be held throughout the morning. The previous in-person expo drew over 600 participants. The Expo gives attendees the opportunity to learn what services are available in the Midcoast to live longer, healthier, happier lives, according to a news release. 

Maine has the highest percentage of older adults in the country; and the Midcoast senior population is growing the fastest. 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, finance and more.  

Free activities throughout the event include a technology help desk, falls risk screenings with Healthy Living for ME, performances by Nor’easters Barbershop Chorus, and you can also try the indoor walking track. Additional activities include Yellow Dot registration, Good Morning and Volunteer Transportation Network program registration, and book signings and author chats courtesy of the People Plus Write on Writers group. Free Wicked Joe Coffee and treats will be provided. 

“By the year 2025, one-quarter of Maine’s population will be over age 65,” said People Plus Executive Director Stacy Frizzle-Edgerton. “Our job is to connect all those residents with the area service providers and the Expo is the perfect place to do it. We haven’t been together in three years – so we are excited!” 

The Brunswick Recreation Center is located at 220 Neptune Dr. on Brunswick Landing (the former Brunswick Naval Air Station). The venue has ample parking, along with bathrooms. Admission is free and open to the public.
