Silver Sneaker and AARP Partners with LJHCC

The Larry Joe Harless Community Center is now participating in a program available to West Virginia residents who are insured members covered under an AARP®Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan insured by United Healthcare Insurance Company (United Healthcare). If eligible you will only pay ½ of Senior Monthly Membership fee (MUST visit the center FOUR or more times per month to qualify.)

The Larry Joe Harless Community Center offers many senior programs to assist in gaining mobility and flexibility.   Morning classes include Arthritis Aquatics and Moving as Medicine (chair aerobics).  Over 42% of all Mingo County residents suffer from some form of arthritis.  Exercise is crucial for people with arthritis. It increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue. Of course, when stiff and painful joints are already bogging you down, the thought ofseems overwhelming.   The LJHCC provides certified instructors that assists you in getting the best out of your exercise regime.

If you have rheumatoid arthritis, ask your doctor if you should exercise during general or local flares. One option is to work through your joint flares by doing only range-of-motion exercises, just to keep your body moving, or exercising in water to cushion your joints.  The LJHCC classes offer these types of exercises.  Ask your instructor for more information.

AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance holders may call the center to see if they qualify for the new program.
