5th community health fair at Helena Place Senior Living

Make plans to attend the 5th community health fair on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 from 9 a.m. – noon hosted at Helena Place Senior Living in Port Royal.

 A variety of complimentary and low cost health screenings will be offered at the annual event.

  • Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s wellness van will offer blood sugar checks, cholesterol and PSA tests by a trained Medical Assistant.
  • The Lending Room will offer balance/fall assessments by a physical therapist.
  • Alzheimer’s Family Services of Greater Beaufort will offer confidential memory screenings by trained professionals.
  • Lowcountry Cremation will offer its handy ‘vital information booklet’ for those wanting to document their biographical information, financial information and specific funeral service requests to give to family members.

Admission to the event is free and open to all ages, but many of the healthcare providers will be geared toward senior citizens’ needs. The first 50 people through the door at 9 a.m. will receive a healthy snack sack filled with items to help attendees maintain good health and happiness.

Raffle prizes will be given away at random to attendees. A complimentary brunch buffet will be provided until 11:30 a.m.

Exhibitors include Amedisys Home Health, Encompass Rehabilitation Hospital, Pruitt Home Health, LTC South Carolina House Calls, Friends of Caroline Hospice, Independent Again and Tidewater Hospice.

The event, which is free to the public, is held annually as a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Family Services of Greater Beaufort, The Lending Room and the Beaufort County Council on Aging.

“It is our pleasure to offer this event to benefit the local community,” stated Lorie Kesler, executive director of Helena Place Senior Living. “These three organizations do so much for our local senior citizens and giving them the exhibitor proceeds from this event is a small way for us to give back to them.”

Helena Place Senior Living is located at 1624 Paris Ave., Port Royal, SC 29935. For more information, please call Rose Ewing at 843-252-3001 or email rewing@enlivant.com.
