Vitality programs for seniors.


The Vitality Initiative at Phelps brings health, wellness and aging-in-place programs to seniors in the community.  Following are some of the programs sponsored by Vitality:

The Breakfast Club is a social gathering for adults in their second half of life, which meets once a month (except in August and December) on Thursday mornings from 8:30 to 10:30 am. Each Breakfast Club includes a presentation on a health topic, a nutritious breakfast and some light exercise.

Cool Conversations is a group that meets after the Breakfast Club to engage in some lively conversation on a variety of interesting topics. The program is meant to be social as well as intellectually stimulating.

Mind Games is a fun way to stimulate various cognitive functions – memory, problem solving, focus and speed. If you are you having trouble remembering things or feel that you are easily confused, come join the fun! The Memory Game, Boggle, Set and Sporcle are just a few of the games played, one Wednesday afternoon a month.

Living Well, sponsored by the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services, is a series of six workshops designed to help seniors manage their chronic health problems. Participants get the support they need, find practical ways to deal with pain and fatigue, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand new treatment options, and learn better ways to talk with their doctor and family about their health.

The Vitality Newsletter is a bi-monthly publication specifically for seniors. To receive the newsletter, either by mail or email, contact Ellen Woods at 914-366-3937 or ewoods@pmhc.us.
