SERVING OUR SENIORS & SPECIAL POPULATIONS
The Greater Wyoming Valley Area YMCA is proud to serve our seniors with a variety of free programs. Thanks to Wilkes-Barre City Health Department, the Area Agency on Aging and other grant funders we are able to support our community with programs for: Balance, Osteoarthritis, Osteopenia, High Blood Pressure, Cancer Survivors and Pre-diabetics.
Our evidence based programs help build strength, increase mobility, combat isolation and incorporate nutrition. Join others already improving balance, osteoarthritis and high blood pressure and create new friends.
Many programs are free for anyone and some programs are free to those age 60 and up. To learn more please call our Wellness Director, Mikayla Mills at 570-931-3720
