Brandywine Living at Alexandria and BAYADA invited residents and their families to participate in the interactive health and wellness event, Get Fit Your Way: Your Personal Report Card on June 2nd, 2018. This event highlights the recent collaboration between Brandywine Living at Alexandria and BAYADA.
Get Fit Your Way featured BAYADA experts at multiple health stations that provided a “health report card” wellness check to each participant. Residents went through each station that tested important health aspects such as posture, hydration, body composition, and nutrition. The final station was a review of their health report card from a licensed BAYADA professional who gave them an overview and practical tips to improve their results. The event gave participants insight into their overall health in a positive and fun environment.
“The event was a huge success, all the residents and families were engaged and eager to participate in the various stations and learn more about what they could do to improve their health. They expressed such contentment with their decision to move into Brandywine and were especially pleased with the level of compassion and attention to detail that the entire Brandywine staff have for the community and residents. Such a great collaboration, looking forward to many more,” exclaimed Megan Pickard, BAYADA Home Health Care Director.
“During the event, one of our residents expressed to the BAYADA team how thrilled he was to know that Brandywine Living and BAYADA are partners. When his wife fell ill, while living at home, they utilized BAYADA’s home care and couldn’t have been happier with their expertise,” said Samantha Tricoli, Brandywine Living at Alexandria Director of Community Relations.
Partnering with BAYADA enables Brandywine Living at Alexandria to provide additional health and wellness services to residents. These services are a welcome addition to Brandywine Living’s wellness program that encourages a healthy and thriving lifestyle, a common goal for both partners.
