Oct 9 th , BINGOCIZE went great with ten participants! If you are interested in learning more about bingocize, come on down Oct 23 rd at 9:00 a.m. or give us a call for more information Bingocize® is an evidence-based 10-week program that combines a bingo-like game with exercise and health education. The unique addition of bingo addresses many of the barriers to older adults’ participation because the game is fun, familiar, and done in a group setting. The program has been shown to increase older adults’ functional fitness, health knowledge, and social engagement in a variety of settings. A mobile app version is also available. The overall goals of the program are to help older adults improve and/or maintain


mobility and independence, learn and use health information focused on falls reduction and other health-related behaviors, and socially engage with other older adults. Download the program summary below for more information.
