Older adults are some of our most loyal members. Here at the Y, seniors have a chance to keep active and grow in spirit, mind and body. New friends and new opportunities add joy to life. The Y also gives older adults a chance to volunteer their time and talents with others, such as children and teens.

Physical activity is essential in maintaining a higher quality of life and independence among seniors. Regular exercise provides many practical benefits, including reducing the risk of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Stronger muscles, better balance and coordination, and higher energy levels all work together to maintain or improve basic living skills.

Matter of Balance

Falls are a serious concern. In collaboration with A Matter of Balance, the award- winning fall prevention program for senior adults, YMCA of Silicon Valley is offering a program for seniors whose fear of falling limits their social and physical activity. Participants will be taught safe and simple exercises to promote strength, flexibility, and balance. This can be problem-solving strategies to address habits and behaviors, lifestyle changes to promote safety or ways to create a safer home environment.
