The Virginian Health and Wellness Fair Recap

Care Begins With Community

At The Virginian, we’ve always known that community and connection are key to a healthy life. So on April 13th, it was no surprise our community showed up in droves to support the health and wellness of local older adults.

Visitors and media outlets flocked to our first inaugural Health and Wellness Fair, which was held in partnership with the Virginia Hospital Center, Capital City Nurses and Inova. Open to the public and featuring over 60 vendors and local health providers, the event was a resounding success.

Empowering Health and Wellness

Attendees visited vendor stations between 10 AM and 2 PM that offered everything from blood pressure and vision tests to workshops on fall prevention and pain management. Visitors even participated in live wellness demonstrations for continued health.

Vendors included Inova House Calls & Geriatrics, Alzheimer’s Association, Virginian Rehabilitation & Wellness, Alzheimer’s Association, Virginian Rehabilitation & Wellness, and many more local health providers who were on site to provide demonstrations and resources for living healthfully.

And since physical health is only a part of overall wellness, older adults and caregivers found mental health resources as well as materials for continuing education courses from George Mason University.

The Best Plans Start Yesterday

Retirement planning was another major focus of the event. Those golden years have a way of sneaking up on even the most prepared. That’s why fair-goers were able to speak with experts in estate planning, elder law, and our team at The Virginian for some much needed peace of mind.

This event was only the first of what we plan to make an annual gathering, where our team at The Virginian can connect older adults to the trove of resources available to them. Until then, you can see scenes from the Health and Wellness Fair covered by ABC 7News.
