Local area older adults, retirees and caregivers are invited to learn about resources and opportunities available to them at an expo next month, according to Assistant Director of the La Porte Park and Recreation Department Susie Wireman.

The La Porte Activity Center for Older Adults, in partnership with the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, will be hosting its first-ever expo for older adults and caregivers from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Nov. 9 at the Healthcare Foundation. Wireman said the theme for the event, Passport to Lifestyle & Health, is a reflection of the world of opportunities that exist for these individuals.

“Our community is so fortunate to have an abundance of resources, services and activities available to older adults and caregivers alike,” Wireman said. “This expo is an excellent way to learn more about these offerings and meet other like-minded people in search of the same thing.”

Wireman said the event is free to attend and does not require pre-registration. The morning will feature a wide array of activities, speakers, resources, health screenings, giveaways, drawings, and free food and beverages. Goodie bags will be available to the first 100 guests.

Businesses or organizations interested in participating in this expo are encouraged to call the Park Office before this Friday’s deadline at 219-326-9600.
