Senior Expos and Conferences in Maine 2018

Senior Expos are shows or fairs that feature services and information especially targeted to Maine seniors. There are often health screenings, talks, entertainment and special opportunities like flu shots and antique appraisals at our senior expos.

Maine Senior Guide hosts five senior expos a year.  For 2018, we plan the Southern Maine Senior Expo Scarborough 2018 on May 2 and the  MidCoast Senior Expo May 2018 on May 18 in Rockland. Join us on June 6 for the Andy Valley Senior Expo June 2018  in Auburn. Our fall expos are Freeport (October) and Kittery (October 10, 2018) .

The popular Boomer conference, Your Second Act Maine, is scheduled for October 20, 2018 at UNE in Portland.

Aging (Parents): 101

We’re developing a new conference for Spring 2018. Called Aging (Parents): 101.  It’s designed to help people discover options for assisting their loved ones and provide a bit of a roadmap for aging. Join us Saturday, April 7, 2018, at the Freeport Performing Arts Center.Aging 101 mail registration

We’ll kick off with Marilyn Gugliucci, the director of the geriatric program at UNE and a doctor who has changed the words we use around aging with her research.

Three more speakers follow:

  • attorneys MaryKathryn Brennan and Smilie Rogers will talk about the difference between Medicare and Medicaid/MaineCare, LTC and private pay, and other means of payment for senior living.
  • Dr. Carl DeMars, Senior Medical Director of Ambulatory Care at Mid Coast–Parkview Health and the Medical Director of CHANS Home Health & Hospice, will talk about Critical Conversations. How do you start and continue those crucial conversations around serious illness, future care, end-of-life, even driving?
  • Advocating for the older people in your life

Lunch (included) will feature designated roundtable sessions where people can talk about what worked for them or ask questions of other people in the trenches as they eat. Tables will focus on discussions like dementia care, respite, senior travel, home care and other topics. Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Freeport.
