Exercise with Friends

Helen Chappell

Senior Companions - Mecosta County

Mary has Senior Companion, Helen Chappell, from EightCAP, visit her twice a week. These two were traveling to Mecosta Senior Center on Wednesdays for Chair Exercise, but Mary has chosen to wait until winter is over and can feel safer being out and about. Until then, Mary and Helen do chair exercises together at Mary's house each week.
This my friends, is how to keep your heart healthy and possibly live to be over 100. Mary is a fine example for Heart Health Month. Keep up the great work, ladies!
