Helping Seniors Stay Healthy

Eric has recently rejoined the Y as a volunteer at the Lakewood Family YMCA to work with seniors to improve their physical and emotional well-being.

"My name is Eric Warn and three times a week I help a group of seniors to work with a chair, ball, straps, and weights to improve their strength. The results are amazing. Not only do they improve their strength, but their mental outlook on life is also through the roof. There is lots of laughter, sharing of stories, and in general just having a good time. On Fridays, one woman brings treats for everyone and the group recently met off-site to celebrate a fellow attendees' passing. We are social human beings and the need to collaborate is strong. This gathering meets that need."
