A: March 17 – 23 is Wellderly Week — a week dedicated to celebrating seniors who are young at heart. Exercise is important for your physical health, but staying active is just as important for your mental and emotional health. Staying active can be fun. Here are some examples:
• Take a class. Find a cooking or art class at your local community center.
• Give back. Volunteer at a local organization such as the humane society, hospitals, boys and girls clubs, etc.
• Exercise. This does not have to be a vigorous workout. Gardening, walking or line dancing all count as exercise.
Oakwood Care Center wants to help you stay healthy and active. We will be hosting a number of activities during Wellderly Week. Anybody is welcome to attend all events; RSVP is preferred to ensure adequate supplies are available.
