Fit & Strong

Seniors

Regular physical activity is essential for healthy aging and provides substantial benefits to the mental, social, and physical well-being of older adults. Older adults need at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity such as walking, biking, or swimming each week. Four out of five (70 million) older adults 50 years and older in America suffer from one or more chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. However, the availability of evi¬dence-based physical activity interventions that allow older adults to socialize and engage in physical activity is one important way to help them manage their conditions, maintain functional independence, and remain vital contributors to their communities. The National Recreation Park and Association has provided a grant to the Mooresville Park and Recreation, which is partnering with the South Iredell Senior Center, to increase the availability and reach of this evidence-based physical activity program. Fit & Strong classes will be taught at the South Iredell Senior Center on Mondays and Fridays 1:30 – 3 p.m. from March 12 until June 4. Class will not be held on Memorial Day, Mon., May 28. The class and fitness equipment are being provided for FREE as part of the grant. Registration is required. Call the Senior Center at 704-662-3337 to register.

The Facts about Colon Cancer

Seniors

It is estimated that 4,633 people (2,432 males and 2,201 females) in North Carolina were diagnosed with colon cancer in 2015. The disease affects men and women equally and those with a family history of colon cancer or polyps are at an increased risk. If you suffer from Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis or Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS), you are at an increased risk. Colon Cancer often has no symptoms in its early stages. Screenings can reduce your risk by up to 90% because polyps found during this process can be removed before they have a chance to develop into cancer. For all senior adults interested there will be an informational workshop held at South Iredell Senior Center on Wed., May 23, 11 -noon to educate about colon cancer and promote prevention awareness. Join us and learn about the risk factors, symptoms and screening options and what one can do to prevent colon cancer. The program is being sponsored by Iredell Health System and presented by their Wellness Nurse Educator, Mary Nance. A light lunch will be provided. To attend, RSVP with $1 to South Iredell Senior Center by Fri., May 18. No registration taken by phone.
