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 Senior Wellness Director, Lauranel Banks at 570-970-5012.
TECHNOLOGY BASICS FOR SENIORS
Using zoom we are offering an educational series for 6 weeks on Saturdays at 3:30pm beginning on January 8, 2022. Join us each week for a new topic and learn smartphone basics, how to use text messages and email best practices. Learn more
GESINGER FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS
The Geisinger Friendly Neighbor program was established to help those in our community facing challenges from social isolation to lack of resources (food, shelter, transportation, medical and more). Enroll as a participant who needs services or as a volunteer to help your neighbors.
Please contact Dominic Griffith if you’d like to sign up to receive this service through the YMCA
