The event was created as a live extension of “The Senior Resource Guide” — an annual directory published in coordination with the county agencies on aging and Maryland Access Point offices, said Betsy Griffin, Senior Expo director. Attendees were given the opportunity to have face time with each vendor to ask personalized questions of the experts featured in the resource guide.
The expo also offered sessions — which were filled to standing room only — on topics such as “Maintaining Brain Fitness,” “Aging in Place/Home Care,” “AARP Fraud Watch Network”. Guest speaker Memo Diriker, BEACON Perdue School of Business at Salisbury College, presented “Boomers and Robots: What the Workforce of Tomorrow will Look Like.”
