Focus on Seniors: Get Moving!
Wednesday, September 25, 2019, Sharon Lawson Room
Presented by volunteer instructors with the S.A.I.L program
The right sort of exercise is vital to maintaining good health and independence, especially for seniors. Volunteer instructors with the exercise class Staying Active and Independent for Life (S.A.I.L) will lead attendees in exercises that improve strength, balance and flexibility.
According to the National Council on Aging, one in four Americans age 65+ falls each year. While falls are a major cause of injuries, they are not an inevitable part of aging. The S.A.I.L. program can help you become stronger, balance better, and remain independent.
In Blount County, you may attend regular S.A.I.L. programs at First Baptist Church of Maryville:
