Randolph, MA – The 26th Annual Senior Celebration, a free health and lifestyle expo, was attended by hundreds of South Shore residents yesterday. Held at Lombardo’s in Randolph, scores of seniors and caregivers took advantage of the services and products that were represented by expo exhibitors and spent hours in conversation  with them. More than 60 vendor tables filled the ballrooms as a steady stream of attendees passed through to learn about important services from experts including audiologists, health care professionals, social workers, skilled facility administrators, hospital case workers, alternative therapy professionals, nutritionists, medical equipment representatives, in-home caregivers, and many others. Attendees also took advantage of free health screenings provided by Signature Healthcare, the expo’s Marquee Sponsor, including vascular and cholesterol screenings.
