In a campaign to promote and encourage practise of a more active, healthier lifestyle The Council of Aging Olympics in Somerville MA are providing opportunities for seniors to participate in weekly activities. Chair Yoga & Zumba Gold classes, day trips and bingos are some of the offerings available for the duration of the event which runs from January to August, with an award ceremony scheduled in September.
By keeping the elderly out of nursing homes and proactively supported in the community, the Council on Aging’s Outreach Director, Lisa Heysion, hopes individuals will be motivated to attend two or three times a week and experience the health benefits of regular exercise and engagement. Participants are awarded medals based on the frequency of their involvement, which provides an added incentive and sense of accomplishment.
