Grand Portage Elders keep moving with Wisdom Steps
The Elders at the Grand Portage Elderly Nutrition Program are staying busy. There continues to be strong participation in weekly water aerobics, chair exercise and Wisdom Steps programs. These programs are especially important as the weather makes it hard to get outdoors. ENP Director Patty Winchell-Dahl said, “When we keep moving, we have less pain from arthritis, stay strong and are less likely to fall. Keeping active makes us healthier and can contribute to a positive, happier outlook on life.”
Anyone interested in participating with Wisdom Steps, please call Carol Hackett at (218) 475-2655. All types of exercise count towards your goal for Wisdom Steps not just walking. The program is open to adults 50 years of age and older.
The ENP has many opportunities to volunteer. Currently ENP is in need of Elders to listen to the grade school children read twice a week. Anyone with some time, please call Patty at the ENP at 457-2655 or 475-2002.
