Wellness Symposium: Learning How To Be Fit and Healthy For Life

Posted on: Nov 26, 2014

Over 300 visitors attended PPh’s March 22 Wellness Symposium, which featured information on ways one can live a healthy lifestyle at any age.

There were over 25 notable exhibitors, including Academy Injury and Health, Bayada Home Health Care, Burholme EMS, Contact Philadelphia, Evercare, Goodwin Hearing Aid Center, Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, Jeanes Hospital, JCC Klein Wellness Center, Lincoln Technical Institute, Mary Kay Beauty & Skin Care, Northeast Meals on Wheels, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, PPh Wellness Center & Beauty Salon, Southeastern Home Health, the VA Medical Center of Philadelphia, and Wellness Resolutions.

Staff got a chance to have some fun at their own PPhunky PPhitness PPhriday event. Wellness, Human Resource, Rec Therapy, Dining Service and Finance employees got into the spirit, making up dances to such tunes as “I Always Feel Like, Somebody’s Watchin Me!” and “Money: That’s What I Want.” Others took a turn in the moon bounce to let off some steam.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.
