Healthy Aging Programs in Grand Rapids, MI
Healthy Aging Programs
Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan serves the community through a variety of helpful programs and services. We are dedicated to helping older adults stay active, flexible and fit at any stage of life.
Our Healthy Aging Programs
Regular physical exercise is essential in helping to prevent injuries, remain fit, and improve overall well-being. Designed for those aged 60 and older, our classes are both fun and engaging. These classes give you an opportunity to protect and preserve your health without having to go to a crowded gym.
Classes We Offer
We offer a wide-range of programs that fit a variety of needs. Our Matter of Balance Class, for instance, can help you learn how to improve your balance and prevent falls. This is specifically for people who have experienced falls or those who have a fear of falling. Our Enhance Fitness for Senior Class, on the other hand, is a little more physical and interactive and helps to promote strength training, flexibility, balance, and aerobics. Even though it’s more physically active, this class is suitable for both the amateur and the experienced, as the exercises can be modified to fit your level of capability.
Other classes include The Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program, Tai Chi Program, Aquatic Program, and Walk with Ease. We also offer Personal Action Towards Health (PATH) classes that focus on helping people with diabetes, heart conditions, asthma, HIV, and other chronic diseases.
