Why it is important to join your local Seniors Centre By Angela Ostojic, St. Thomas Seniors Centre If you’re an adult over 50, you may be looking for a place to go, a place where you can socialize with other like-minded people, take classes, engage in organized activities, and have some fun! Seniors centres can be the answer. Seniors centres offer access to programs and activities that promote positive aging and enhance quality of life, allowing members to strengthen social relationships and connect with seniors from around the community. In addition, many seniors centres offer a variety of ways for seniors to stay active and to achieve and maintain good health through a range of programs aimed at improving not only physical health, but mental health as well. From gentle exercise to yoga, tai chi, Qigong and seniors karate, there’s a fitness class for every ability and fitness level. Many centres will also offer a daily lunch menu, which is helpful not only for those who want a break from cooking, but also offers another opportunity for seniors to socialize with their peers from the community. Whether you’re looking for a way to get involved in your community or simply want to mingle with other like-minded people your age, there are many benefits to joining your local seniors centre. Find the centre near you and arrange a visit!
