(LINWOOD, NJ) Brandywine Living at Brandall Estates 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 May 6th, 2017. This event highlights the recent collaboration between Brandywine Living and BAYADA and the positive impact the partnership has on participating communities.
Get Fit Your Way featured BAYADA experts at multiple health stations that provided a “ health report card” assessment 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 where an overview and practical tips to improve their results were discussed. The event gave participants insight to their overall health in a positive and fun environment to encourage healthy lifestyle choices.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in Get Fit Your Way at Brandall Estates this weekend. Our entire team had an enriching day with your enthusiastic and incredibly well informed residents and their families. We recognize the privilege to be a part of their wellness,” remarked Susan Carlson PT, DPT, Project Manager, BAYADA Home Health Care after the wellness event.
Partnering with BAYADA enables Brandywine Living 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.
“Our residents had a wonderful time participating in the Get Fit Your Way event. We have very active seniors living here, and they are always interested in expanding their knowledge, as well as staying healthy. They are excited to have BAYADA as our partner to enhance our wellness programs, as well as to offer PT, OT, SLP, and skilled nursing services to our residents,” said Sherry Sullivan, Executive Director at Brandywine Living at Brandall Estates.
