New Year – New YOU!  COSA offers a program to help sedentary older adults get moving

Adults age 60 or older who want to be active but have problems maintaining traditional exercise programs are invited to participate in a health and wellness program sponsored by the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA).

Physical inactivity is a major health problem in the United States. In fact, over 60 percent of Americans don’t get enough physical activity. Twenty-five percent are almost completely sedentary. Each year, as many as 300,000 deaths in the U.S. are due to physical inactivity and poor diet.

To address this problem, COSA is pleased to offer Active Living Every Day classes in Delaware County. Active Living Every Day is a behavior change program, focused on helping sedentary adults fit physical activity into their lives in realistic ways. The program is based on ground-breaking research that has resulted in important discoveries about physical activity and health.

The program will meet virtually on Zoom on Mondays at 10:00 a.m. beginning January 23, 2023, through April 10, 2023. The program is offered FREE and includes class participation, the book for the program, and access to additional support through the program’s website and online resources.

See attached flyer for more information.  To register for the Active Living Every Day Program, contact Ellen Williams, COSA Health and Wellness Program Coordinator at williamse@co.delaware.pa.us or call          610-499-1937.  Provide your name, address, phone number and email address.
