About the Wellness Center

A Century of Service


The Little Compton Wellness Center began nearly a century ago as an organized response to the U.S. flu epidemic of 1918 – 1919. Over the years, we have provided numerous health and wellness related services to the communities of Little Compton, Tiverton, and Westport.

Today, we continue to strive to fulfill our mission:

To Promote Healthy Aging Within Our Community Through Affordable Programs And Services

From the Program Director, Marsha Riccardi

I consider my position of Program Director at the Wellness Center in Little Compton to be a most wonderful opportunity.  Having a strong interest in being well and helping others in my life to be well  fosters my desire to help our community learn, grow, socialize and find services to help each other. It is my intention to continue to enrich the programs and services at the Wellness Center based on our pillars of healthy living:  Body, Brain, Nutrition and Community.  
I am happy to be a part of the inspiring group of people who maintain a vision for the Wellness Center and our community at large.

Come, Get Healthy, Join the Fun

We offer programs focusing on what we consider to be the four pillars of healthy living: Body, Brain, Nutrition and Community. We hope you’ll join us soon!
