AlphaCare’s ‘Wellness and Resource’ Initiative Is Keeping Seniors Active In East New York

On Thursday, June 22nd, AlphaCare continued their Wellness and Resource Series of events with a Diabetes Awareness Health Fair for senior citizens at the Brooklyn Sports Club in East New York, Brooklyn. Joining forces with Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, the purpose of the event was to bring various community resource partners onto one platform in order to increase the awareness of the services available to Seniors throughout Brooklyn. Some of the community partners that AlphaCare collaborated with were Access-A-Ride, Brookdale Hospital, Clear Caption, Department of the Aging, SNAP-Met Council, NYPD Community Affairs, New York for Seniors, New York Life, EPIC, and many others. From 10am to 3pm, the seniors in attendance enjoyed healthy refreshments, cooking demonstrations, Zumba, prize giveaways, live entertainment by the Dancers of BRC, and got a chance to play AlphaCare’s new Wheel of Health game.

“We love arranging these events for seniors in all areas of Brooklyn because it’s important that they are well informed about the right resources.  Not all seniors are digital savvy due to the generation that we live in at this current time,” said Cindy Lai, Director of Communications and Marketing. “We are promoting a healthier lifestyle for seniors so they can live longer for their families but they must remember everything they do affects them as a whole. ”

“I really had a good time at the fair; it was fantastic”, said fellow attendee Michele Brown. “I would like to call myself the dancing machine and the DJ was playing the jams. I had a good time for a great cause”.
