THE AGING BRAIN

Wednesday, August 21
1–2 pm
Dr. Jeff Buchanan, Professor of Psychology at Minnesota State University, Mankato, Presenter

Have you ever had difficulty remembering the name of a familiar person? Been in the middle of a sentence and can’t find the right word to say? Entered a room and forgotten why you went in there in the first place? These situations can cause concern for older adults who may begin to question whether something more serious is going on. Older adults are often unaware of normal changes that occur as we get older and what are signs of a more serious problem. This program will provide an overview of the changes in cognitive abilities that normally occur as we age. General guidelines for distinguishing these normal changes and more serious problems will also be discussed.

Registration deadline is 8/19

Aqua Zumba @ VINE Adult Community Center Pool
Sep 7 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

VINE is offering Aqua Zumba the 1st Saturday of the month in place of Water Exercise Level 2.

Perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine.

Aqua Zumba blends the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss!

There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.
