This year the I Know Expo moved to the Lexington Senior Center in our neighborhood. Since 2013, Lexington has been home to this unique senior living expo that offers a one-stop-shop, one-day event that invites guests to address senior issues like financial planning, transportation, aging in place, housing, and more.

The expo was filled with empowering information about the services, resources and support available to make the rest of life the best of life.

Dozens of vendors who know about aging well and coping
with disabilities were on hand to share what they know by chatting one-on-one or through informative presentations on everything from housing, healthcare and insurance, to legal and financial planning, to living well and staying active.
