Keeping seniors more active both physically and mentally can ward off a number of diseases and afflictions. Senior Services Plus is inviting seniors to come out to the "Circus at the Center" from 8am-3pm this Wednesday, May 29. There will be a number of themed physical activity "stations," including a basketball shoot, balloon dart game, bean bag toss and photo booth.
It's all in concert with the 20th annual Senior Health & Fitness Day. Activities Coordinator Margaret Lanier says keeping active mentally and physically can help maintain good quality of life.
Studies have shown that there is a 46% lower risk of developing dementia in individuals who utilize high mental activity levels. Again, the "Circus at the Center" runs from 8am-3pm on Wednesday, May 29.
