The Turn’s commitment to enhancing health and wellness of the physically challenged community continues to go beyond its weekly program for individuals and local groups. Educational opportunities have become a key component to helping program participants continue their quality of life throughout their daily lives. In addition to programs like adaptive yoga, new educational seminars have been offered to help participants expand their knowledge on the topics of memory loss, nutrition and fall prevention.
“These educational seminars have been quite popular amongst our participants, including their caregivers and spouses,” said Fitness coordinator Gina Babinec, PT. “We have new topics and speakers scheduled for the remainder of the year, which will further meet our goal of enhancing each participant’s quality of life.”
