TDC’s Senior Services Program offers programs and activities that ensure that seniors are living active, healthy and engaging lives! We believe inclusion of the elderly population in community, cultural, and recreational activities builds a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Our goal is to expand programs, activities and to offer a more comprehensive health and wellness program to prevent chronic disease and to promote healthy aging and increase awareness of the benefits of physical activities for older adults. The expansion of programming would include, delivering additional classes and a variety of activities: yoga, tai chi, weight training, stretching and strengthening programs, walking programs and a host of workshops that focus on healthy aging, arthritis, depression, diabetes prevention, fall prevention, memory, nutrition, osteoporosis, relaxation and stroke prevention.
