Care Connection for Aging Services encourages older adults to participate in the National Senior Health and Fitness Day this Wednesday by choosing from a variety of resources available online.
All of Care Connection’s 22 locations are encouraging participants to use the link found at www.goaging.org/news to find the activities most suitable for them. At the website is a collection of online activities tailored to the needs of older adults. These include an exercise warm up, 10- and 20- minute workouts, strength, balance and flexibility exercises, and workouts for upper and lower body strength. Also included are several links to trusted nutrition resources.
The National Senior Health and Fitness Day has been a featured springtime activity at Care Connection’s senior centers for many years; in 2020, the centers adapted to the online efforts to continue with the focus at a time when COVID-19 has forced the cancelation of in-person services.
In addition to the compilation of activity links provided at goaging.org, older adults may visit fitnessday.com to find information about live online events that day.
