On Friday, June 11, 2021, Culpepper Garden hosted a health and wellness fair, one of the first in-person community events held since last year’s pandemic outbreak. Over 50 residents and caregivers attended the event and received valuable information and resources on healthy aging, stress relief, healthy eating, ways to boost memory, and resources for vision and hearing impaired, among other topics.
The fair was sponsored by Virginia Hospital Center and included several organizations who set up informational displays, shared information and answered questions. Participants included Old Dominion Health Care, Viva Vita (Virtual Reality), INF Cares (Virtual assistant tablets), Northern Virginia Resource Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons and representatives from various programs offered by Virginia Hospital Center.
Residents walked away feeling hydrated, happy, and relaxed thanks to smoothies provided by our dining services team and massages in our spa inspired multi-purpose room. Many thanks to our Resident Services team and our Volunteer Manager for putting together a wonderful event. We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future.
Thanks to funding from Arlington County, we will continue to share resources through our upcoming Caregiver Week programs scheduled for June 14th – 18th. To sign up or for more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
