For older adults, staying socially active and maintaining interpersonal relationships can help you maintain good physical and emotional health and cognitive function. Join friends, network and relax at Senior Spa Wellness Day, this Sunday.

In recognition of Senior Citizen's Month, celebrated locally in September, Angels4U HomeCare and Chas E. Ramson Limited, through its Attends health care products, have partnered to treat seniors at an event dubbed 'Senior Spa Wellness Day'.

"We realised we hadn't really heard any plans for or much acknowledgement of this designation, so we called Angels4U HomeCare, which we know caters to this demographic, and asked about their plans. We then put our creative juices to work and literally came up with this concept in an hour, with only two weeks to activate our plans. We were glad we decided to go ahead despite our limited budget and time.

Exciting plan

"With the help of MC and Associates, we are proud to say we have managed to put together an exciting plan for our seniors that will leave them relaxed, rejuvenated and feeling worthy of our attention, said Michelle Farr-Vassell", brand manager, Chas E. Ramson Limited. She continued, "Many times, it seems our seniors are a forgotten group, but we want to show that this is far from the truth,".

Specially designed for persons 60 years and over, 'Senior Spa Wellness Day', at the Eden Gardens Wellness Resort and Spa, 39 Lady Musgrave Road, Kingston 5, will be a day of pampering. Paying special attention to holistic development, seniors can enjoy various discounts on spa services at Eden Spa, as well as receive free health checks, nutrition advice, private one-on-one consultations, prizes and surprises, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., tomorrow.

"At the end of the day, we want them to feel fit, fine, fierce and fabulous! They can luxuriate at the spa, network, socialise with old friends and meet new ones, or just enjoy Ramson's delectable products. Our seniors have given so much to family, community and nation. This is our little way of giving back. It's all about them. They've earned it," Melody Cammock-Gayle, director, Angels4U HomeCare, said.
