Active Older Adults
Studies have shown that it is never too late to develop strength and that strength is necessary to enhance vital capacity and quality of life as we age. Active Older Adults remain functionally independent longer than inactive older adults and continue to make valuable contributions, which are both rewarding both to them and their communities. We invite you to come and be part of the many opportunities offered to our Active Older Adults. The YMCA offers a covered dish luncheon for special events quarterly. Look for more information as these events approach.

SilverSneakers® Fitness Program
SilverSneakers is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity and offering social events. SilverSneakers is a benefit offered to members of many Medicare plans across the U.S. If you are part of a Medicare health plan or if you are a group retiree you may already have the SilverSneakers benefit.
Find out if your health plan or Medicare Supplement carrier offers SilverSneakers or find a participating health plan in your state simply by contacting the Y.
