A successful senior health fair was recently held at a living center in Lexington, organized by Bonita Taylor with the United Vendors of America. The event provided an opportunity for local seniors and residents of assisted living homes to learn about health care insurance and other products and services relevant to their age group.
Taylor was inspired to organize this event after attending a senior health fair in Frankfort, Kentucky about 15-20 years ago. She felt that it would be beneficial to bring a similar event to Lexington and invite the local community to participate. One of the vendors present at the fair was Aetna Medicare Solutions, which had a booth where representatives educated attendees about health insurance and emphasized the importance of face-to-face interaction in educating seniors about intangible products like insurance.
The goal behind the fair was not only to provide information but also to offer attendees meaningful gifts for their loved ones. Vendors selling skin care products and jewelry were present, giving attendees an opportunity to find unique presents for their family members or friends.
Due to its success, Taylor plans to organize another senior health fair in the near future, with even more vendors expected to attend. This will provide seniors with even more opportunities to learn about alternative and additional benefits that can complement their Medicare coverage.
