Thursday, Oct. 11, Assumption Culture Center hosts its popular Senior Expo, an event featuring community resources, information, opportunities, products and services geared for older adults. This marks the 25th year for the free expo, set to take place 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the St. Clair Shores facility.
“Everything is in one place for them,” said Joan DeRonne, coordinator of the expo. “The entire place is dedicated to every bit of possible information available today. It’s for all seniors as well as their families or anyone who would like to come and see what’s happening.”
Keynote speakers from past expos were invited back to mark the anniversary with TV personality Chuck Gaidica leading the lineup. His presentation focuses on second careers and other opportunities after retirement and will be offered twice during the expo. Other speakers include Fox 2 reporter Charlie Langton, meteorologist Jerry Hodak and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel.
Exhibitors will offer information of special interest to seniors, including home care, assisted living, insurance, estate planning, banking, healthy living activities, social
security, volunteer opportunities, retail products, recreation and more.
Vision, balance, spine and blood pressure checks, hearing tests, chair massages and other healthcare screenings will be offered free of charge.
Participants receive lunch, a 25th anniversary T-shirt and a free resource guide, DeRonne said.
“There are pages and pages of every service available to seniors, including healthcare, recreation and social (opportunities),” she said.
Past expos have attracted around 1,500 participants.
