LANSING, Mich., May 22, 2023 — State Rep. Angela Witwer (Delta Township) partnered with ambassadors from Tri-County Office on Aging, Oasis Senior Advisors and AmeriCorp RSVP, among several other community organizations, hosted a healthy aging fair on Saturday. The goal of the fair was to inform older Michiganders about ways to remain active in the community, provide health and fitness resources, and share information on senior living.
“Our communities and our state owe so much to older Michiganders,” Witwer said. “This fair was a great way to show our appreciation for them and make sure that they are aware of all the sources of support available to them. Plus, we had some fun!”
The event featured light refreshments and chair yoga, a form of yoga accessible to older and disabled people. A number of the resources offered at the fair help seniors find meaning and purpose through serving their community, which has been shown to promote healthy aging. Other resources included opportunities to stay physically active and care facilities that help promote independent lifestyles.
