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 Senior Center will be offering a free indoor program, Walk with Ease, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, Jan. 7–Feb. 14, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Elizabethtown Senior Center, 70 S. Poplar St., Elizabethtown.
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. The program 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.
