MAC to host Thrive! expo/ event on Saturday, Oct. 26

A free, one-day, one-stop presentation of information, resources, opportunities and services of interest to residents age 55 and older is coming to Salisbury on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Thrive is a senior expo event taking place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at MAC in Salisbury, sponsored by MAC, the Salisbury Independent newspaper, Holloway Funeral Home, Chesapeake Health Care, and Lakeside Assisted Living at Mallard Landing.

“Living longer presents us the opportunity to pursue happiness, learning and lifestyles in new ways,” said MAC Executive Director Pattie Tingle. “Thrive will support your choice in how you age.”

Visitors will find a variety of vendor stalls and educational exhibits too. Presentations on topics of interest to seniors will be held at various vendor’s booths throughout the day.

Vendors include community nonprofits like Coastal Hospice and Habitat for Humanity; health-related businesses like Community Farmacy, Apple Discount Drugs, Peninsula Alternative Health and Peninsula Home Care; and information on Window World of Delmarva.

Learn about services and opportunities designed to allow seniors to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, including bathroom makeovers to increase safety for seniors by Herl’s Bath & Tile Solutions, financial advice from InFocus Financial Advisors and First Shore Federal to prepare and sustain a comfortable retirement.

Vendors as of this printing include Springhill Memory Gardens and Pet Cemetery, Holloway Pet Cremation, Lakeside at Mallard Landing and the U.S. Census. Additional vendors are being added daily.
