If you want to get in shape, play games, socialize and unwind, the Foundation for Senior Living has teamed up with televëda to provide free online classes.
FSL and televëda, a Phoenix-based company that aims to fight social isolation among seniors and vulnerable residents, is providing these virtual classes, thanks to funding from Phoenix Suns Charities. The classes came about as senior citizens and others are confined to their homes because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Classes are offered in Tai chi, meditation, Bingo, brain games, virtual museum tours, lectures from experts around the world, chair yoga, karaoke, dance and other topics. Tom Egan, president and CEO of FSL, said it is important for adults with disabilities and senior citizens to keep active during the pandemic. Many of FSL’s clients are dealing with social isolation and missing their regular visits to the organization’s Adult Day Health Centers, which had to close for safety reasons due to COVID-19.
The Phoenix Suns Charities’ donation also helps FSL’s recreational therapists create more ways for clients to stay engaged from home. Caregiver tool kits, tailored to each client’s physical and cognitive physical abilities, are being delivered to their homes.
To sign up for classes, contact televëda’s 24/7 customer support number at 833-299-1449. You may pick from the monthly classes offered at www.televeda.com.
