Peggy Kinst from Ageless Grace will demonstrate simple cognitive and physical exercises seniors can do while sitting down, and Joe Perez of Microsoft will walk attendees through the use of social media, Skype and other applications as a way to connect the generations.
“We were thrilled with the response to last year’s senior conference and used feedback from the event to put together what we believe is our best line-up yet,” said Naperville and Lisle Townships Triad chair Brian Foster. “We look forward to welcoming all of our 2016 conference attendees and are confident they’ll all leave a little bit healthier and wiser.”
In addition to the presentations, approximately 30 area organizations representing a variety of community senior services will showcase their products and offerings to attendees in the Lower Level Meeting Rooms of the Municipal Center. Prizes will be raffled at the end of the event.
