Some Highlights of ELOKK’s day at the Aging Well Expo

October 4, 2011 Comments Off on Some Highlights of ELOKK’s day at the Aging Well Expo

The Aging Well Living Well Expo at Sunday River was a great success. There were ongoing seminars throughout the day, and we were among lots of venders where attendees could get valuable information and lots of goodies.

Here’s our table where we had lots of handouts, including a do-it-yourself Maine Advance Directives form. We also gave away (my favorite) pens and lots of chocolate.

It was great getting to know some of the other people and businesses that serve seniors in Maine.

There were many very informative seminars. Ours was on the documents that a caregiver should have as an alternative to guardianship

We presented a seminar on the documents that a caregiver should have for a family member who is facing incapacity and how guardianship and conservatorship proceedings work when advance planning wasn’t possible. But, there were plenty of fun sessions too, like this Zumba class.

A highlight of the day was a Chondola ride after lunch up to the summit at Sunday River. It almost makes me want to learn to ski.
