Fitness & Wellness for Ages 65+

There are many organizations that support individuals and communities either at a local or national level. Once per month, for Wellness Wednesday, we will share one of these well-respected organizations in order to connect you with more resources that support Health & Wellness. 

As the weather improves and we welcome summer, there are plenty of opportunities to think of ways to enjoy being active outside. For adults over the age of 65, with an eligible Medicare plan SilverSneakers is available at NO ADDITIONAL COST. Their FAQ page states, “Our program is designed for all levels and abilities and provides access to online and in-person classes, over 15,000 fitness locations, and health & wellness discounts.” SilverSneakers offers classes in person (not available in the Upper Valley) and online. Online classes are available both live and on demand. Whatever works with your schedule, options are available!

Check out SilverSneakers to explore your eligibility, engage in fitness classes, and review their blog posts supporting a holistic approach to wellness.

Every Wednesday, CommunityCare of Lyme lifts up a wellness topic, embracing the widest possible definition of individual and community well-being. We include local and national resources, individual and group programs and practices, and personal stories, videos, or songs that have something to teach us all. We are always seeking guest contributors! 

If you have a wellness-themed topic you would like to share or learn more about, please reach out to
