Free wellness classes offered remotely for seniors


SIDNEY — The Area Agency on Aging will be offering Healthy U at Home classes for free starting in March.

The three free programs offered help with chronic conditions, chronic pain, and diabetes, presented either as abbreviated telephone discussion groups or full workshop content online via Zoom.

Each format is offered weekly for six weeks and new groups are scheduled to begin every seven weeks starting in March, May, June, August and September in 2021. Free materials are shipped to participants’ homes so that they can set personal goals, learn new skills, and take charge of their health. Phone discussion groups last about 45 minutes, and the Zoom workshops are about 2 hours long. Upcoming programs are listed on the agency website at https://info4seniors.org/news/wellness-programs/.

Anyone interested in Healthy U at Home classes can contact Ann Finnicum at HealthyUAnn@gmail.com or 937-567-0284 to register or discuss which program and format works best. Space is limited and it is first come, first serve.
