Bay Area Senior Advocates (B.A.S.A.) are proud to announce their 16th Annual Ideas for Life Senior Expo, held Wednesday, May 17 2017 from 10-3 at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center, in Traverse City, Michigan.
We are pleased to present the "Ideas for Life" Senior Expo. This is our 15th year of providing this comprehensive resource of solutions for the changes (and perhaps even challenges) your family will experience as we deal with our aging nation. We are so blessed to live in a nation, which allows each of us to plan for and make good choices, for ourselves, and the people we love.
Traverse City is an amazing town with very user-friendly streetscape for its neighbors and guests. It offers beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, world-class entertainment, and blessings we enjoy from Mother Nature, guaranteeing that this region is, and will remain, a retirement destination location. The folks in this room, and representatives of these companies, will help you take care of the people who are important to you!
We know that when people plan, prepare, and realize what they want to enhance their quality of life as they move into their seasoned section of their life, they will be happier and live longer.
Traverse City and Grand Traverse County are amazing in the goal to plan for our community as a family. Our region has used the unique qualities of our topography and light industry to create the Traverse City lifestyle. We are used to people caring about each other, the environment and our guests.
Since its inception, the Traverse City based group's mission was to educate about and advocate for the needs of our aging community. Through collabration and strong volunteerism, B.A.S.A. has developed Ideas for Life Senior Expo aimed at that very same goal of education, advocacy and collabration.
With over 100 exhibitors, this one day event features many local and statewide services available to our aging parents and/or spouses.
Through the collaboration of the many B.A.S.A.-member organizations dedicated to serving aging individuals we've developed several educational opportunities for our community.
