Health and Wellness Fair 2016




The rainy weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of residents who visited the Health and Wellness Fair sponsored by the Cooperative Business Council of Fairfield Harbour at the Community Center on November 3.


It was an ideal venue to raise awareness of many health and wellness options. Residents were able to meet and talk with representatives from a wide range of health and wellness services in our area to nurture their own wellbeing of mind, body and spirit. Some vendors offered interactive activities like blood pressure checks, vision checks, physical measurements, and chair massages. Both vendors and residents seemed pleased with the easy access to share information back and forth across the tables on topics such as legal services, insurance, financial planning, travel assistance, home care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, nutritional supplements, fitness facilities, vision and hearing care, assisted living options, and home air filtration.


Throughout the event, the intermittent special presentations were well-attended and provided even more in-depth information on subjects of fitness, pre-diabetes awareness, and long term care planning solutions. A Big Thank You to the 27 businesses and 6 non-profit organizations that participated.


The non-profit organizations that were represented offering health awareness and assistance for residents were: The Alzheimers Association, Community Center Exercise Group, Diabetes Education Group, FH Cares, FH Hospital Auxiliary, and the Prostate Cancer Support Group.
