ACTIVE OLDER ADULTS

Active Older Adults (AOA) at the Y experience a strong sense of belongingness and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through ongoing, fun, safe, and engaging programs, activities and events AOA members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of each older adult within their AOA community.

Older adults are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All AOA benefit from engaging in YMCA activities that enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being.
