Delaware County’s older residents are in for a treat this year as the SourcePoint Health and Wellness Expo goes off-site for its annual showcase. The event will be hosted at the Delaware County Fairgrounds, specifically at the Agricultural Center located at 236 Pennsylvania Avenue. Scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, this expo promises a comprehensive array of health services and wellness information tailored to the needs of the community members aged 55 and above.

Comprehensive Health Screenings

The highlight of the expo is the extensive range of free health screenings available to attendees. Over 70 exhibitors will be on hand, offering tests and services that cover nearly every aspect of senior health. From basic screenings like blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels to more specialized assessments such as A1C, dermatology evaluations, and cognitive wellness checks, the expo aims to provide a holistic view of each visitor’s health. Additional screenings will include balance and mobility tests, emotional wellness evaluations, and vision health checks, ensuring that attendees have access to a broad spectrum of health information.

Educational Opportunities and Resources

Education is a cornerstone of this event, with numerous opportunities for attendees to learn about health services and lifestyle enhancements. The expo will feature information booths on a wide variety of topics including healthy eating, emergency preparedness, eye health, and medication safety. Special attention will be given to aging services like Medicaid benefits, mobility equipment, and volunteer opportunities. Interactive sessions such as chair yoga, aromatherapy, and CPR training will also be available, providing practical skills and new experiences in a supportive environment.

Community and Accessibility

The event is a community gathering that fosters social connections among Delaware County’s senior residents. Accessibility is a key focus, with golf carts available to transport guests from parking areas to the main venue, ensuring that everyone can participate comfortably. The presence of therapy dogs and pet adoption services will add a warm, communal feel to the day’s activities.

Supported by Local Organizations

Several local organizations are sponsoring the expo, highlighting the community’s commitment to its senior members. Notable sponsors include Ohio Living Sarah Moore, Hiram Masonic Lodge, J&J Mobility, Oakview Dermatology, and Oasis Senior Advisors. These sponsors not only help make the event possible but also provide essential services and information to enhance the quality of life for older adults.
