Senior Strength Training

Resistance and strength training can enable senior citizens to regain muscle mass and strength at any age. You’re never too old to build a little muscle and fight conditions like osteoporosis. Many of the degenerative diseases experienced in the aging process are related to loss of muscle mass and strength. Focus will be geared to those issues related to senior citizens. This class will utilize basic exercises on machines and with free weights.

CarePAL is a workshop series that focuses on care partners (CPs), also known as family caregivers: people helping to care for a family member or friend with a serious illness (care recipient).

It also assists the care recipient (CR or “your loved one”) through key activities and contacts involving both the care partner and the care recipient.

CarePAL views the two of you as a team, working together now and in the future. Care partners and their care recipients openly and jointly plan for the future together.

Have you or your loved one been diagnosed with a serious chronic illness such as stroke, cancer, diabetes, or a chronic
heart, liver, kidney or lower respiratory disease?

Do you have questions or concerns about how to handle the challenges and stressors that come with serious chronic
illness or decisions and future plans about ongoing care at home?

If so, CarePAL may be able to help you!

Through our free workshops, you will learn:
 How to manage your concerns, stress, and distress
 How to prepare for changes because of serious illness
 How to communicate about serious illness with others
 How to stay engaged and plan for the future

For more information about our CarePAL series currently being offered in the Phoenix Area, please call: 602-496-1239

OR (Outside of Maricopa County) 1-844-418-5538
