Parish-Area Seniors: Ready, Set, Get Fit!

A regular program of exercise for the elderly improves conditioning and helps prevent chronic diseases. Physical exercise benefits seniors more than any other group.

The Parish Senior Dining and Activity Center (PDAC) is ready to keep our seniors active, building their strength and endurance while having a great time with friends. The OCO Senior Services Division is promoting a Physical Activity Group for the centers, and Parish is ready and willing. Participants from each of the eight sites have submitted names for this group and the name selection will be in the near future, but for now we are calling it “The Parish Physical Activity Group” (PPAG)

There are many different opportunities to benefit your well-being at the PDAC, located at 814 Rider Street . There will be an optional opportunity to weigh-in each day, when you arrive. There will be physical activities before lunch on M, Tu and Th, with lunch served at noon followed by a variety of activities relating to nutrition, history and themes.
