Upper Marlboro, MD and Temple Hills, MD (May 13, 2019) — Avanath Capital Management, LLC, a private real estate investment manager and Registered Investment Adviser, has launched Activate, a health and wellness program being rolled out at two senior communities: Vistas at Lake Largo in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and Manor at Victoria Park in Temple Hills, Maryland.

Activate is a free on-site proactive program focused on increasing health awareness and education while promoting the health advantages of an active lifestyle.

Through Activate, Avanath is partnering with the University of Maryland Capital Region Health to offer vital health screenings such as, blood sugar testing, cholesterol and blood pressure.

 The program will also offer health education classes on such topics as cholesterol management, medication management, diabetes management, fall prevention and balancing, and establishing healthy eating habits.

In conjunction to the health services, the Activate program will also offer wellness services that will include a range of fitness and exercise classes, healthy cooking classes, and quarterly social events focused on encouraging resident interaction.

For the wellness programs, Avanath has partnered with Cor Community Development Corporation, which serves as a nonprofit managing general partner for Avanath properties in California and Washington State.

 As part of investing in its resident’s health and wellness, Avanath has converted previously unutilized community space into a state-of-the-art wellness facility that includes screening rooms complete with exam tables, medical supplies, medical exam equipment and other necessary components that allow providers to administer health exams.

“These health services are invaluable to our residents’ overall well-being,” says Alicia Bramble, Sr. Asset Manager and Impact Investment Committee Vice-Chair.

“The response we have received from our residents and on-site teams has been very positive and we look forward to a successful program.”

“Wellness is a key component leading to healthy residents at Avanath’s active-adult communities,” says John Williams, President & CIO.

Seniors thrive in communities that offer holistic wellness programs like Activate. In addition to providing the physical activity that so many residents need and desire at these communities, Activate’s wellness programs will also enhance their state of mind and social relationships in their living environments by providing them with opportunities to engage with fellow residents.”

Williams notes that the health and wellness program provides tangible benefits to Avanath investors and its residents.

“Activate fulfills Avanath’s social-impact fiduciary duties, which is a significant factor to our company’s mission and that of many of our investors,” says Ada Arevalo, VP Fund Management and Impact Investing Committee Chair.

“The program also fulfills a commitment to our residents to promote their health, allowing them to remain in these communities longer and reducing their need to transfer to an assisted living facility.”

Avanath launched Activate at Manor at Victoria Park on May 2 and at Vistas at Lake Largo on May 8 with special events on-site that featured guest speakers and healthy refreshments.
