Those in attendance will find useful tools, invaluable advice, knowledgeable experts, housing options, health care services, and more for those age 50 and older. Attendees can even receive special savings on medical equipment and other services.
"Children of aging parents have found the Life Enrichment Expo to be just as useful as those seeking advice for themselves," Carlin Trietsch, director of Adult Services at the Springfield Jewish Community Center (JCC) and Life Expo coordinator, said.
Trietsch is referring to the sandwich generation, which has become responsible for not only their young children, but also their aging parents. Those in the sandwich generation will benefit by getting information for themselves and their parents.
"The Basketball Hall of Fame is a great location. It's easy to get to and the parking and admission are free," Trietsch added.
Attendees will meet a wide variety of vendors, including eye and ear care, foot care, home health care, residential living services, hospice care, home renovations and more.
In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Life Expo will also feature free lectures to help people enrich their lives or the lives of their parents:
The 20th anniversary of Life Enrichment Expo is presented by Health New England and Noble Visiting Nurse and Hospice. The Springfield JCC and PRIME Magazine and Reminder Publications are co-sponsors and founders of Life Expo. NovaCare Outpatient Rehabilitation is a platinum sponsor; AARP-Mass-achusetts and PeoplesBank are gold sponsors; and Gentiva Healthcare is a silver sponsor. CBS3-Springfield is the media sponsor.
Admission and parking are free. Transportation will be available from the JCC with advance reservation. Call 739-4715 for more information.
