Looking to continue your daily walks during the winter months but don’t want to deal with the cold weather?
The Lancaster County Office of Aging and Elizabethtown Area Senior Center will be offering a free indoor program, Walk with Ease, on Mondays and Fridays, Jan. 8 to March 9, from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Developed by the Arthritis Foundation, Walk with Ease is an interactive workshop specifically developed for people with arthritis who want to be more physically active. It is also appropriate for those living with diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.
The central activity of the program is walking, but each session begins with education tailored toward those living with arthritis.
Each participant will receive a workbook that provides information on arthritis, pain management, self-monitoring, and how to overcome barriers.
Sessions will be held at the Elizabethtown Area Senior Center, 70 S. Poplar St., Elizabethtown.
