That is the goal of this year's Forever Young Health and Living Expo put on by the Forever Young Newspaper, a publication gear to an older crowd. Greskowiak is 78-years-old and she also works with seniors at a retirement home. She said this expo not only helps her personally but also in her job.

"We have a ton of resources from health care, medical, health and wellness, even home improvements. All these different resources that are under one roof," Johnson said.
