Age well ~ live well

 

If you live in Texas you may have heard of Texercise. Here is some info on it.

 

If you don't live in Texas maybe you can get it started wher you live by asking for more info from Silver Lining or Texercise program.

 

Need to get volunteers into the facility?

 

Read the article below:

 

From Senior News (newspaper)

 

Silver Lining, a volunteer outreach program of the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), provides companionship & meaningful connections for people living in long-term care settings (LTC). The programs core message is to improve quality of life by improving social connections. Silver Lining works with volunteers by assisting with locating a facility partner, providing program resources & providing recognition incentives to enhance the volunteer project.

 

 

A great way to get involved is to host a 12 week Texercise program for residents, as one of Silver Lining planned activities at a facility

 

Texercise is a statewide health promotions program that supports people & communities in making healthy lifestyle choices.

 

Silver Lining & Texercise work hand & hand to support volunteers & the residents they serve.

 

Silver Lining volunteers can start a Texercise 12-Week "Fit for the Health of It! Challenge" with residents to encourage wellness through increased physical activity. Program resources include a free exercise DVD, pedometers, calorie converters, resitance bands, pledge sheets, & a Texercise 12-week program daily fitness log (incentives are provided to participants 45 & older & vary depending on availability).

 

Program volunteers implement the 12-week Texercise "Fit for the Health of It! Challenge" to help residents be more physical activity.

 

It is important to note that the facility (volunteer location) is ultimately responsible for the activities conducted on its premises & for the health & safety of its residents. All activity details must be approved by & coordinated with the facility.

 

For more info, call 1-800-889-8595 or visit www.volunteer-atdads.org (links are provided for both Silver Lining & Texercise program).

That is such a great Idea. I am very new too the Activites Realm. One week to be precise.

 

I am the director at a small memory care facility on Columbus GA. I can use all the help I can get too make a very worth while program for our residents.
