Maine has the highest percentage of older adults in the country; and the Midcoast senior population is growing the fastest. The People Plus Senior Health Expo brings together a variety of resources for this increasingly important segment of our community.  The Expo provides an excellent opportunity to learn about products and services in the categories of medical services, fitness and health, technology, legal, community services, housing/respite care, and finance and more. 

“By the year 2025, one-quarter of Maine’s population will be over age 65,” said People Plus Executive Director Stacy Frizzle-Edgerton.  “Our job is to connect all those residents with the area service providers and the Expo is the perfect place to do it. We haven’t been together in three years – so we are excited!”

The Brunswick Recreation Center is located at 220 Neptune Drive on Brunswick Landing (the former Brunswick Naval Air Station). The venue has ample parking, along with bathrooms. Admission is free and open to the public.
