Aging Expo event planned for older adults and caregivers

O’Fallon, Ill.-based AgeSmart Community Resources is planning a “ROCK OUT at the Aging Expo,” to be held virtually on Thursday, May 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Log in begins at 8:30 a.m.

The annual event features resources and information for older adults and caregivers. The keynote address by Dr. Gary Behrman, clinician, consultant and educator, will address “Aging Gracefully” at 9 a.m. Presentations throughout the morning include a cooking demonstration, presented by Senior Services Plus at 10:10 a.m. and Travel in Southern Illinois, presented by Andy Waterman with ILLINOISouth Tourism at 10:50 a.m.

“Switching to the virtual platform provides us with great opportunities to showcase new information and resources with many more attendees. Transportation, weather and walking around a huge event space is no longer a concern. You can be educated, entertained, and feel connected from the comfort of your own home,” said Joy Paeth, executive CEO for AgeSmart Community Resources.

This year’s Platinum Sponsor is Humana, Gold Sponsor is Clinton Manor and Silver Sponsors are Dignity Manor, Saric Consulting, Home Instead, Cambridge House and Essence.

Sponsorships for this virtual event are still available.
