Programs

programsPersonal Training: We work with individuals to provide personal attention and guidance. We will design a program specifically to meet your needs that you will not only enjoy but will help increase your strength. We will help build and maintain your program.

Health Education: We offer monthly Health Chats with guest speakers on various senior health issues. We also offer Healthy Habits For Life, a 12 week course about lifestyle choices, the Lunch & Learn Discussion Group about nutrition with our Registered Dietitian, and the Wellness Center Library with many health resources.

Prevention Services: Monthly Hearing screens are available through Sound Associates. Annual Health Fair Screens include: osteoporosis, pulmonary function, balance, memory, blood pressure, back, foot and alignment screens.

Sound Steps: This is an independent walking program open to all members. Once a week our van goes to one of many beautiful walking paths in the city, so you can walk and enjoy the scenery, as you stay fit.

National Senior Health Fair: This is an annual event, which brings together multiple senior health resources. We have information booths from national health education and promotion organizations, and many free health screens by local providers (see Prevention Services above). This health fair is part of a national movement to promote a healthy lifestyle for all seniors. You’ll also enjoy fun, food, entertainment and prizes.

Socializing and Fun: During group classes there is always time for fun and socializing, while we move toward our fitness goals. There are intergenerational movement classes that focus on creative playful exercises. We have special events throughout the year that also provide opportunities for socializing and fun.

Scholarship Program: We have scholarships available to seniors from the community who would like to become members of the Wellness Center or take classes from us and are unable to pay the full amount of the membership fee.

Alternative Therapies: Our consultants are certified and licensed professionals, offering Massage, Acupuncture, and Reflexology. There is a separate fee for these therapies.

Rehabilitation: We provide seamless integration with our Rehabilitation Services. When residents or community seniors have been discharged from Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy, they can continue working with staff in the Wellness Center. We receive therapy discharge instructions, so we can help the individual stay motivated and follow their program and continue to make progress.
