United Vendors of America Hosts Successful Senior Health Fair in Lexington, Educating Seniors on Healthcare Insurance and More


Feb 12, 2024
Health Fair for Lexington Seniors

A senior health fair was recently held at a living center in Lexington, organized by Bonita Taylor with the United Vendors of America. The goal of the event was to provide local seniors and residents of assisted living homes with information about health care insurance and other products and services relevant to their age group. Among the vendors present were those selling skin care products and jewelry.

Taylor was inspired to organize this event after attending a similar fair in Frankfort, Kentucky 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 key vendors at the fair was Aetna Medicare Solutions, who had a booth where they talked with attendees and educated them about health insurance. Patrick Lee, a representative with Aetna Medicare Solutions, emphasized the importance of face-to-face interaction in educating seniors about intangible products like insurance.

One of the goals behind the fair was to provide seniors with information about alternative and additional benefits that could accompany their Medicare. Taylor emphasized that many seniors are not aware of these extra benefits, so providing this information to them was a priority for her. In addition to informational booths, vendors also sold skin care products and jewelry, making it an opportunity for attendees to find meaningful gifts for loved ones.

Due to its success, Taylor plans on organizing another senior health fair in the near future. This will continue to provide valuable resources and information for seniors in Lexington and surrounding areas, helping them make informed decisions about their healthcare needs.
