Get ready for the amazingly fun and informative 2016 Senior Health and Wellness Expo. It should actually just be called the "Wellness Expo" because it is really for all adults. You will learn new ways to improve your well being, get free health screenings and receive tons of great information.

Many of vendors will have raffles and giveaways. Join in on the games and talk to experts about different aspects of staying healthy for you, your parents and grandparents. All of the information as well as testing can be done for any age. The Expo will offer many choices if you have aging relatives who may soon be looking to make some major changes to their living arrangements. Don't wait until you are pressed to make big decisions. Gather the information now.

If you are searching for new doctors and healthcare professionals, many opportunities will be available to find them at this event, too.
