2022 People Plus Senior Health Expo Sees Large Turnout

The 11th annual People Plus Senior Health Expo, in partnership with Spectrum Generations, was held at the Brunswick Recreation Center at Brunswick Landing on Thursday, Oct. 20. The highly successful gathering, the first in-person Expo since 2019, drew about 600 participants and nearly 80 businesses, services and programs were represented. 

Maine has the highest percentage of seniors in the nation and the Midcoast region is where this population is growing the fastest. The People Plus Senior Health Expo brought together a variety of resources for this increasingly important segment of our community with fun and engaging displays, tons of information and great swag.

Expo vendors were also grateful for the opportunity to present their available services.

People Plus would like to thank Lead Partners Plus, Coastal Landing Retirement Community and Mid Coast-Parkview Health, with additional Partners Bill Dodge Auto Group, Gateway Retirement Solutions, Priority Real Estate Group, Rusty Lantern Market, Spectrum Generations, The Vicarage by the Sea and The Times Record. Thank you also to Event sponsors including Aetna Medicare, Avita of Brunswick/Sunnybrook Senior Living, Beltone Hearing Aid Centers, Brackett Funeral Home, CBD American Shaman, Maine State Credit Union, Preferred Therapy Outpatient and Wellness at Coastal Shores, and The Highlands along with Refreshment Sponsors AAA NNE-Brunswick, Big Top Deli, Bridges Home Services, Brunswick & Topsham Housing Authorities, Martin’s Point Health Care, and Wicked Joe Coffee. And a huge thank you to The Town of Brunswick for providing the venue.

“We were so happy with the turnout for our first Expo back in-person,” said Jill Ellis, People Plus Program and Events Coordinator. “We had a continuous flow of traffic from beginning to end and glowing reviews from vendors and guests. We are happy to be able to bring this event to the Midcoast community to highlight all of the wonderful services that are available.”
