Silver Sneakers is a fitness program offered through the YMCA. It is the nation's leading fitness program (so they say) designed for "older" adults. I go three times a week for 1 hour each session. Safe, fun and effective movements with hand held weights, elastic tubing with handles, and a Silver Sneakers ball. I keep wanting to say Silver "Streakers," but that definitely isn't the right word... :) ! Bill is able to "cope" while I am gone. I make sure he is comfortable and has everything he needs at finger tip until I return. I feel better already!
