Trinity Oaks plans health and fitness event for seniors

Trinity Oaks Retirement Community, 728 Klumac Rd., will join an estimated 1,000 local events to celebrate the 16th Annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day on Wednesday, May 27.
As an official host site, Trinity Oaks will hold “Fitness IS a Good Move! An Afternoon of Fun, Information and Fitness” from 1 ń 5 p.m.
Trinity Oaks will join with an estimated 100,000 seniors across the country to help promote active, healthy lifestyles through physical fitness, good nutrition and preventive care.
Trinity Oaks Executive Director Mike Walsh says the event is “a wonderful opportunity for seniors to make, renew and revitalize their commitment to live healthier lives through better health and fitness.”
Diane Hundley, director of marketing and sales, says the event is also an opportunity for people in the region to see the Trinity Oaks campus and learn what it has to offer.
Services offered during Fitness IS a Good Move include:
– Daylong screenings including blood pressure checks, hearing aid checks, mobility aid fittings, vision screenings, hat and wig fittings and a diabetic shoe clinic.
– A drive-through CarFit assessment, during which occupational therapists from the Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks will help older drivers adjust mirrors, headrests and car seats to achieve optimum visibility and safety.
– A session led by representatives of F&M Bank to discuss being financially fit for and in retirement.
– Informational sessions led by Rowan Regional Medical Center on its services such as cardiac and stroke care, nutritional education especially for diabetics and some of its many therapy programs.
– A Color Your Plate program by Trinity Oaks Dining Services team emphasizing healthful food choices.
