ELLSWORTH – A Senior Expo in Ellsworth having a little bit of everything.
It’s the first time the Bangor Daily News has brought an expo of this kind to Ellsworth. Older residents were able to participate in a drug take back. Get screened for things like cholesterol and blood pressure and meet with hospital staff and chiropractors.
Organizers say seniors are more likely to take advantage of the services when they are all in one place.
“Having everything in one condensed location, everything that they need, it gives them the ability to really reach out and get information. We have health screenings today. To have it in one location is so convenient for them.” Deandra Briggs, Director of Marketing
AT&T was also on hand – giving seniors one on one assistance for their smartphones or tablets.
