The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce is now in its 20th year of presenting the popular 55+ Expo and we want you to understand something critically important: the 55+ Expo is NOT an event just for senior citizens!
Much of what happens at the event is planned with seniors in mind and much of our focus is in ensuring that the golden years are filled with life and energy. However, if one waits until they’ve reached those years before starting to envision and plan how they want them to look, it will be difficult to make their dreams come true. In addition, many in the age bracket 35 and older find themselves caring for aging relatives. In addition to our Caregiver’s Support Center, the 55+ Expo, with its diverse group of quality vendors, features a variety of goods, service, and resources that can help. Don’t skip this article because you are not yet 55 — and don’t skip the Expo either, or you may miss something truly valuable for someone your age, whatever your age is.
On Tuesday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m.– 3 p.m., many people from Delaware and surrounding states will gather at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino- Rollins Center for one of the largest expos of its kind in Delaware, the CDCC’s 20th Annual 55+ Expo.
The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present an event designed to bring seniors and their caregivers together with the products and services that will allow them to live their best lives. This free event will showcase businesses that can assist our seniors as they do their best to maintain active lifestyles and stay involved in their local communities.
Bayhealth Medical Center will be on hand to provide free health screenings and informational tables in our Wellness Center. Consultants will be there to help answer questions and offer guidance on the journey to better health.
The 55+ Expo is not just for seniors! The 55+ Expo also offers help for a younger generation that may be providing care for parents and grandparents in the Caregiver’s Support Center. Caregivers bear an enormous responsibility. Knowing the multitude of resources that are available and how to find them will be a critical component as you care for your family’s older generation.
