Abilities Expo showcases essentials for seniors

Abilities Expo is for Senior, too

Most seniors will tell you that they do not have a disability. They just need a little help every now and then. We get it and we can be that help.

Abilities Expo has customized its vast offerings into a targeted list of exhibits, workshops and activities geared toward anyone eligible for AARP. Use the following information to plan your ideal Abilities Expo senior experience.

Here's what we did in 2014. Stay tuned for 2015!
