First Ever Senior Health Fair Encourages Seniors to get ready for Winter
We get our cars and homes ready for the winter and the Eastern Area Agency on Aging wants seniors to get themselves ready for the season too. The first ever Senior Health Fair is going on at Spectacular Event Center in Bangor. It’s geared toward the 50+ crowd, but caregivers are encouraged to stop by as well. Seniors can get glucose, blood pressure and hearing tests done for free. You can also get a flu shot and sign up for Medicare Part D. Organizers say it’s a one-stop shop for a winter tune up. ” Today everything is so specialized and they go from doctor to doctor and they have different screenings in different places and here they can just do it all in one shot,” said Carol Higgins Taylor, communications director for EAAA. The event runs until 2 o’clock Friday afternoon.
