By Vicki and Brian Day

On Wednesday, March 30, Home Helpers of the Northern Lehigh Valley participated in the annual Health and Wellness Fair at Gracedale in Nazareth, PA. Over 50 booths were set up to help support the mind, body and spirit of all the seniors who attended. There were free health diagnostic screenings, healthful eating strategies, fitness tips, healthcare support and massages available to the approximately 450 people who came.

Margaret Schaeffer, a Gracedale Elder Care Registered Nurse who organized the event, stated that she “was very happy” with the offerings of the booth displays and the enthusiasm that it was received by both the residents of Gracedale and the surrounding community which came to partake of the various offerings.
