As we age it's no secret that many of us need to pay closer attention to our health and safety. But it can be difficult to sort through all the programs and options available for seniors.
Betty Zook is about to turn 65 and is trying to navigate through all those services she can get.
"One thing about turning 65, everybody and their brother will send you junk mail. I'm just throwing it in a box. So eventually when I get enough factual information I'll try to sort through it and make a decision," she said.
Betty and nearly 1,000 others flock to the Expo center Tuesday morning.
"I waited a long time to get here. Nearly 90 years," laughed Grady Barganier.
At the annual Senior Expo attendees can get their hearing checked for free. They can get a flu shot and take their blood pressure.
People register to vote and learned about local candidates. And they even receive help planning for retirement.
But above all the Expo connects seniors to programs customized just for them.
"All the vendors here care enough to come under one roof and make it easy for people to get information because we value senior citizens in this community," said organizer Tammy Lawson.
"Everybody wants to stay as independent as they can and I think that's what today is all about," said Wanda Lippert as she wandered through the booths.
It's so Central Texas seniors like Betty can live their best lives.
"Make the most of every day, live for all your worth. When you're all used up come screaming into home plate and just go for it," she said.
"Going" for it with more options, and no regrets.
