From the FALA Conference to Passport for Wellness Senior Health Benefits – What’s New for the Week of August 15, 2016 in Active Aging?
What a week! We have been traveling just about as much as our star Hank does, spreading the word about seniors staying healthy and active! Check out what we did to forward senior health and active aging this week:
#1 – Passport for Wellness at the 2016 Florida Assisted Living Association Conference and Tradeshow!
Meeting and working with activity directors, enrichment coordinators, recreation therapists, and senior wellness advocates is one of the best parts of our work at PFW, which is why we had so much fun discussing senior wellness, active aging, and creative ideas for seniors the FALA Conference at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando this week! From the show floor and Booth #111 from August 16-17, we were able to attend incredibly and inspiring assisted living-focused classes and get to know so many important senior wellness advocates in the state of Florida.
Thank you to everyone who visited our booth! Sharing the news about Passport for Wellness with caring Floridians who share our vision further inspires us to continue the mission of providing enrichment for our senior citizens in our home state of Florida and worldwide!
