We look forward to seeing you for a full day of activities, fun, and educational opportunities.
Highlights will include live music, comedy, and a full slate of short seminars covering a wide range of topics for senior citizens.
- Southeast Texas Senior Expo – Lumberton
- Thursday, June 16th
- 9a – 2p
- FREE Event
There will be valuable door prizes given out throughout the event and during each of the seminars – like $50 gift certificates to Salt Grass Steakhouse, Walmart, and Academy.
This will be a fun event for groups and individual seniors. There will be ample parking for church buses and other senior group vans.
A number of local senior providers have teamed up to make this year’s event special.
Title Sponsor: Texan Plus
Texan Plus will be providing two of the educational seminars during the event. As you can imagine, Southeast Texas seniors have a lot of questions about Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans. What is a Medicare Advantage Plan? How are they different from traditional Medicare? Texan Plus will have experts on hand to guide attendees of their two educational seminars through all of these questions. Did you know that veterans can receive BOTH a Medicare Advantage Plan AND their VA medical benefits? It is true. This often helps SETX veterans receive the best of both worlds – high quality health care, often provided right here at home.
Host Sponsors: Lumberton Family Funeral Home and SETXSeniors.com.
Lumberton Family Funeral Home has brought the “family” feel back to the Golden Triangle funeral home community. The community is run like a family. A number of the staff members are also local youth ministers. After a long week’s work, they can often be found playing gospel tunes together before heading home. Their reception meals and snacks are typically all homemade from scratch. One of their missions is to help Southeast Texans get away from funeral planning being something that happens after death when families are already struggling with grief. They work hard to help families prearrange funeral services. This helps a family stay in budget, makes sure the funeral is funded well in advance of need, and ensures that the final arrangements are exactly what each of us would want down to choosing the music and scriptures. Do you want a butterfly release? Would you like your famous chicken and dumplings to be served at the reception? Whatever you want, Lumberton Family Funeral Home can help you plan your end of life celebration.
SETXSeniors.com & the SETX Senior Resource Guide are the leading resource for senior news across Southeast Texas. They work hard to provide information about entertainment and activities for seniors as well as a detailed look at Golden Triangle senior service providers. One of their most popular features is their “Last of the Greatest” series featuring Southeast Texas WWII veterans. The staff has been hard at work coordinating the SETX Senior Expo – Lumberton.
Platinum Sponsors: Gentiva Hospice and New Century Hospice
Gentiva Hospice and New Century Hospice are both dedicated to educating Southeast Texas about the mission of hospice and how it can assist our family members in preparing for their final days on their own terms.
Gentiva Hospice and New Century Hospice will each host two educational sessions at the expo.
Each session will provide an introduction to the mission of hospice care, examples of services offered, and insight into how their dedicated staff members compassionately work in our community.
Do you have questions about hospice care? This will be a great opportunity to get answers.
Gold Sponsors: Quality Care Services, Magnolia Cemetery, Stewart Title Company, and Professional Health Care’s Home Health Service.
Home Health is one of the leading services that can prolong the length of time Southeast Texas seniors are able to stay in our own houses.
Many seniors are unaware of how many of their medical services can be provided in the comfort of their own homes. Did you know through home health you can receive physical therapy, IV antibiotics, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, and help managing your diabetes?
Quality Care Services and Professional Health Care’s Home Health Service will each host an informational seminar to provide more information about the benefits of home health care.
Are you spending too much time driving back and forth to the doctor’s office? Then don’t miss this educational opportunity.
Magnolia Cemetery is one of the oldest cemetery’s in this part of Texas.
Many of Beaumont’s founding father’s are buried here, and Magnolia Cemetery continues to provide a comfortable resting place for today’s generation – and for generations to come.
