SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Vitality at Phelps Hospital is more than a word. It’s an initiative to promote the health and wellness of adult members of the community through programs and services that focus on the physical, psychosocial and intellectual aspects of aging.
Vitality provides educational seminars, exercise opportunities and nutritional programs to help seniors live and age well. Vitality is also a resource to help older adults age-in-place safely, independently and comfortably.
One of the most popular Vitality programs is The Breakfast Club; a series of free breakfast meetings designed especially for seniors. Each program includes a free breakfast, a presentation on a healthy lifestyle topic and a light exercise program to improve strength and balance. It’s also a great opportunity for older adults to socialize with their peers.
On Nov.19, Vitality at Phelps and Senator Terrance Murphy’s office are sponsoring a senior wellness day. The day will focus on relaxation; promoting healing and wellness; and developing an awareness of how one’s diet can affect their health.
The event will be held at the Mount Pleasant Community Center in Valhalla from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
