On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, Senior Services Plus will host a ‘Way Back to Wellness’ event in celebration of the 22nd Annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day.  The event is designed to encourage physical and mental activity among senior citizens.  Studies have shown that there is a 46% lower risk of developing dementia in individuals who utilize high mental activity levels.  Regular exercise reduces the risk of chronic illnesses.     

The ‘Way Back to Wellness’ event will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a Classic Car Display in front of the center.  Classic cars and trucks will be on display from 10:00am- 1:00pm.  Mental and physical activity “stations” and information booths will be available on the inside of the building with giveaways and door prizes available.
