Health and Wellness

The Office for the Aging offers a variety of programs to keep seniors active.

Many older people think they are too old or frail to exercise.   Nothing could be further from the truth. Physical activity of any kind is good for you.

Exercise your mind with Brain Games - events are held throughout Dutchess County, attend one near you!

Summer Senior Picnics have been offering opportunities to socialize with their friends and neighbors for 26 years and counting! Volunteers of all ages are needed at each picnic to help with set-up and clean-up, and to bring meals to the handicapped attendees; and at the Office for the Aging to make reminder calls prior to each picnic.

For more information about volunteer opportunities, click here for a brochure and application form, email bjones@dutchessny.gov, or call (845) 486-2544.
