Wii program helps senior citizens stay active and healthy

October 30, 2008


Seniors can still get out and play golf despite the chilly autumn temperatures.

That's because they can play indoors.

Douglas County Senior Services is offering a Wii program from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesdays in November at the Lawrence Senior Center, 745 Vt.

The interactive video game allows people to participate in games such as bowling, tennis, golf, baseball and boxing.

It's a way for seniors to increase physical activity, lower blood pressure, improve hand-eye coordination and have fun.

For more information, contact the senior services at 842-0543.

This is an awesome idea. My grandfather visited from Pennsylvania a couple of months ago. He was quite a bowler back in the day, and he loved the wii bowling and other sports games. Even now when we talk on the phone, he asks if I've been practicing (I'll beat him someday!). The Wii is a great way for seniors to stay active and social.
