Mark Your Calendar for April 12, 2015!

The i know expo is a FREE event for people of all ages and life stages: living out their golden years; taking care of someone they love; coping with difficult health situations or simply smart enough to know it’s never too early to start planning for the future.  The i know expo will empower us with information about the services, resources and support available to make the rest of life the best of life.

Scores of experts who know about aging well and coping with disabilities will be on hand to share what they know. Chat with them one-on-one or attend informative presentations on everything from housing, healthcare and insurance, to legal and financial planning, to living well and staying active and kern what is available and accessible to you here in the community we live in (Lexington, KY area)

You can walk around, pick up material and chat with experts at individual booths, sit in on informative talks about subjects of interest, enjoy art, music and entertainment. It’s going to be a lively, upbeat, engaging event that can make a real difference in your life or the life of someone you love. Please spread the word to your friends, family, church and social groups.

You will…

• Know how to find services in your community to help care for a loved one.
• Know how to plan for future physical, emotional and financial well-being.
• Know how to choose the best option for housing.
• Know how to stay mobile, sharp and engaged.

ButterflyTransWhat inspired the i know expo? And what’s that butterfly all about?

The poet Robert Browning put it in a nutshell:

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,

Human beings, like the rest of the natural world, pass through distinct life stages, each with its own circumstances, challenges, roles and responsibilities.
Nature transitions smoothly from stage to stage, saving the best for last. (Caterpillars seem to know just what to do to become butterflies.)
But we seem less programmed to prepare for what’s next.  Like the ostrich, we bury our heads in the sand and hope time won’t pass and life won’t change.

Perhaps it’s because we don’t know how to cope with new roles and responsibilities or know about the resources that can help us move from one life stage to another as effortlessly as a caterpillar to a butterfly.
