The 6th Annual Health and Wellness fair came and went, and was a tremendous success! The Home Care team partnered with 35 vendors for this event and welcomed over 175 patrons! Vendor participation offered the largest variety of services since it’s inception. We enjoyed visiting with long-time partners like Providence, Infinity Rehab, and Metro West who have strong relationships with residents and staff throughout the Mary’s Woods community.
We welcomed some new faces to the fair, such as Amazon Bookstore and Oasis Senior Advisors. Each vendor brought amazing raffle prizes and remarkable innovation. The Amazon bookstore showcased the capabilities of the Alexa Echo and Alexa Dot for assisting seniors with low vision, memory, life enrichment and typical activities of daily living (grocery and reminder lists). Eventually, the name “Alexa” ‘echoed’ throughout the fair.
The treats at the fair were delightful as well. Metro West Ambulance brought and baked cookies at their table (as usual), Mary’s Woods own Sous Chefs promoted health and wellness by providing yummy Crudite’ and the Pastoral Services and Wellness team provided massages, acupuncture, and spiritual wellness options.
All in all, the fair was healthy and well for everyone who attended. There was energy, light, laughter, music, budding friendships, innovation, education and most of all- FUN!
Many thanks to all of our partners who made this event the best one yet!
