Event on 2017-06-05 10:30:00
HIGHLAND PARK, IL (MAY 31, 2017) – In celebration of National Senior Health & Fitness Day on May 31st, Freedom Home Care, one of Chicagoland’s leading and most respected home care agencies, is kicking off a series of wellness activities for seniors throughout the month of June.

Every Monday from June 5-26, Freedom Home Care is sponsoring a Gyrokinesis Method Movement class at The Highland Park Senior Center, 54 Laurel Avenue, from 10:30-11:30 a.m., taught by Amy Pena of SPRYL Chicago. Gyrokinesis works on opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength. The fee is for senior center members, or for non-members. Call 847-432-4110 to register.

Freedom Home Care is also hosting a Wellness Week, June 11-17 at The Lodge of Northbrook, 2220 Founders Drive, with a series of events to help residents and area seniors stay active and healthy, including: yoga, tai chi, zumba, gyrotonic, and in-car ergonomic assessments. Call 847-897-2821 for a full schedule of events and to sign up.

“Freedom Home Care is proud to play an integral role in helping seniors stay fit and healthy and be able to continue to live happy and healthy lives in the comfort of their own homes,” says Jenanne Rock, Agency Manager. “Our goal is to help seniors improve their health and overall quality life everyday, not just on National Senior Health & Fitness Day.”

Freedom Home Care realizes that physical activity is one of the most effective ways of preventing conditions like stroke, diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline. Exercising 30-minutes each day can help seniors lower blood pressure and increase muscle strength, and exercising four to five times each week helps revitalize brain cells, be mentally less fatigued and stay more focused.
