Applewood Mind, Body, Spirit Health Fair Welcomes 150 Seniors

Applewood is a continuing care retirement community—CCRC—which means residents are provided with a wide variety of activities, events and services that support mental, physical and emotional health.

In November, residents took advantage of free on-site blood pressure, blood sugar, hearing and memory assessment screenings from 20+ exhibitors, including the CentraState Healthcare System family and the surrounding community.


From relaxing aromatherapy professionals to senior clinician specialists, residents had a front row seat to chat with a variety of professionals promoting health and wellness.

“It’s wonderful to see so many people here,” said resident Carol Niehaus, waiting for her chair massage. ”The giveaway items are nice, but having so many screenings available really makes it easy to get a quick check.”

“What a fantastic event,” said Pharmacist Tony DeBlasio, owner of Tony’s Family Pharmacy in Freehold Township for the past 28 years. “This is a wonderful retirement community run by people who truly care about seniors. I should be so lucky to move here one day.”


Additional exhibitors included:

  • CentraState Medical Center Emergency and Cancer Services
  • Applewood at Home
  • Advanced Wellness Chiropractic and Physical Therapy
  • Bright & Beautiful Pet Therapy
  • Clear Captions
  • Miracle Ear
  • Monroe Medical Associates

Residents were also treated to relaxing and therapeutic Reiki and Chakra Flow (sound healing, aromatherapy & reflexology) education.


Meeting Every Senior’s Needs, Regardless of Fitness Level

“When these health and wellness opportunities are available just steps from your door, you are naturally more inclined to participate,” says Daniel Piereth, Applewood’s full-time fitness coordinator. “You have to work a little harder later in life to stay healthy, but the return on this investment is well worth it.”
