April 3, 20, 2016 Bluegrass Ballroom, Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY
iKnow Expo

As the population continues to age, more and more services are being offered to Lexington’s senior citizens.

The “i know expo” was created to address senior issues in a one-stop-shopping format in the form of a one-day expo. This year’s event will be held April 2 in the Bluegrass Ballroom in the Lexington Center from noon until 4:30 p.m.

The answer to many problems and adjustments encountered by seniors and the ones who love them will be addressed by the exposition’s exhibitors and speakers. The good news is that the “i know expo” can help folks young and old plan for the future with more confidence.

The expo will showcase products such as health solutions, financial services, personal care services including homemaking, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, skilled nursing and home health aid services, health education and counseling services and many more related products and services, etc., in the medical and pharmaceutical, business services industries.

The Expo’s mission is to arm seniors and their caregivers with what they need to know to plan for the future: care for someone they love, live with disabilities, age with joy and grace.

The expo is the brainchild of founder Gale Reece, who said it all started with transportation issues.

“The i know expo grew out of ITNBluegrass. Independent Transportation Network — dignified transportation for seniors. In 2006, I began the effort to start the local affiliate of the national private non-profit for senior transportation.”

Through the years, Reece began to notice requests for additional information about senior services from the families of members to ride coordinators and the executive director. Reece devised the idea of a one day, one place expo for information and services in the community.

“Our target audience is adult children of frail elders, those caring for loved ones with disabilities and all in my Boomer generation, who should be preparing for our own aging situations,” she said.
