VNACHCH opens in-person exercise classes again

VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice is excited to announce its popular exercise and wellness education classes will once again be held in person this fall.

After more than a year of keeping its Guilford Wellness Center and Hamden program closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit agency will open its doors again, and its instructors will also be back in local senior centers offering exercise classes for all ability levels and informational talks on a variety of topics pertaining to living well.

The fall lineup includes Exercise for Better Balance, Fitness & Movement Basics, Functional Cardio & Fitness, Movement & Mobility, Senior Boot Camp, Zumba, and others.

VNACHCH will also bring back in person its exercise class tailored toward individuals living with Parkinson’s disease, and the agency’s popular Parkinson’s support groups for patients and caregivers, as well as the general caregiver support groups held in multiple locations.

All classes carry a small fee for a 12-week series.

“We are thrilled after so much time apart to welcome our loyal class participants as well as hopefully many new faces back into our Wellness Center and Program Room, and to be able to serve those throughout our territory,” said VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice Health Promotions Supervisor Chris Corsi. “Our exercise class participants depend on us to stay moving, stay fit, and stay healthy, and that remained the case throughout the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We were fortunate that so many individuals stuck with us while our classes and groups remained in a Zoom format, and we are grateful to be back in person.”
