The Leader and Memorial Hermann Greater Heights are once again inviting local seniors and their loved ones out for a day of fun, food, and information gathering as the 7th Senior Expo is fast approaching, with less than two weeks to go.
The annual event is officially set for Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the SPJST Lodge 88 at 1435 Beall St., beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. The event provides access to resources, services, and businesses across the community that are imperative for senior care.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and greet with a variety of different vendors offering healthcare, insurance and transportation options while listening to experts tackle subjects important to senior health. They will also be able to enjoy free breakfast and lunch, along with door prizes and other giveaways throughout the day.
Cavatore Italian Restaurant will be catering lunch for the event. Further, while the Expo’s primary aim may be to specifically help seniors find some much-needed services and resources, Leader Publisher Jonathan McElvy said several types of caregivers in the community can also gain great insight into caring for senior loved ones during the event as well. At least 500 attendees are expected for the festivities.
“This is a really cool opportunity for us, as a community newspaper, to give back to our residents in a crucial way,” Publisher Jonathan McElvy said. “Even if people in the community are not technically seniors, there are businesses here that offer wonderful services to those on the caregiving side of things. We hope everyone can stop on by.”
Admission to the Senior Expo is free of charge. To register for the event, visit theleadernews.com or call 713-686-8494.
