Maine Senior Guide is hosting the Southern Maine Senior Expo at the Hilton Garden Inn, 5 Park St., Freeport, on Sept. 25, from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Thirty-eight vendor booths will offer information on everything from senior communities to walk-in baths and insurance products. Starting at 10 a.m., 22 speakers in the nearby Old Town Hall will give detailed information on topics from senior sexuality to questions about home care or joint replacements.
The Southern Maine Senior Expo is a great opportunity for adult children to find the information they need to assist their senior loved ones in lifestyle choices, or for seniors to talk with providers.
The day includes a AAA Driving School from 8 a.m.-noon ($15 at door; call 791-8577 to pre-register. The schools qualify people over 50 for car insurance discounts) and a free flu shot clinic all day, offered by CHANS. Carousel Horse Farm is giving free carriage rides around the square from 1-7 p.m., and Stan Lourie will give walk-in antique appraisals from 2-4 p.m. ($5 fee per item benefits the Alzheimer’s Association.)
Speakers include Pat Moody, director of public affairs for Maine’s Traffic Safety Department, who will discuss a new senior driving initiative the state is developing with AAA; and Dr. Laurel Coleman, Alzheimer’s specialist from Maine Medical Center.
