Charlestown Hosts Annual Health and Wellness Expo

Last week, more than 275 Charlestown residents attended the community’s Annual Health and Wellness Expo hosted by the Charlestown Fitness Team. More than 50 vendors were on hand to provide residents with inspiration to “Make Every Day Count with Healthy Lifestyle Changes”, the theme of this year’s event.

The Expo featured several expert speakers, including Jeff Watson, Erickson Living's Director of Operations, who discussed the Social Dimension of Wellness; Daina Buivys, APRN, MH, who shared insight on Mental Health and Wellness; and Creighton Spencer, General Manager, Dining Services, who discussed an Insider's Perspective on Dieting, Healthy Eating and Dining at Charlestown.

“This year’s Wellness Expo was a huge success. Residents are still talking about how they enjoyed the lectures and wealth of information they received,” said Teresa Reymann-Curran, Fitness Manager. “It is so exciting to see residents motivated to take that information and put it into action with healthy, positive lifestyle changes.”

Utilizing a uniquely holistic approach to wellness, Charlestown encourages healthy living as part of every resident’s physical, emotional and spiritual life. The Annual Health and Wellness Expo offers residents a chance to learn more about all of the resources available to them, both on campus and through community partners, to embrace an active, vibrant retirement lifestyle.
