Texercise Select

Originally developed by the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), this program focuses on interactive educational discussions and physical activities.  It is designed to help individuals increase their knowledge about the value of physical activity and healthy eating; increase their ability to engage in healthy behaviors, physical activity and good diet; and to improve their mobility to make sitting, standing and walking easier.  This program meets twice per week for 10 weeks.

A Matter of Balance

 A class designed to reduce the fear of falling, stop the fear of falling cycle, and improve activity levels among community-dwelling older adults. The program includes eight 2-hour classes where participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable; to set realistic goals for increasing activity; to change their environment to reduce fall risk factors; and to promote exercise to increase strength and balance. Participants find they have a significant level of improvement regarding management and control of falls and an increase in their level of exercise and social activities.

Bingocize is an evidence-based 10-week program that combines a bingo-like game with exercise and health education.  Participants play Bingocize for one hour 2 times per week. Because the game is fun, familiar, and done in a group setting the unique addition of bingo addresses many of the barriers to older adults’ participation in physical activity.  The program has been shown to increase older adults’ functional fitness, health knowledge, and social engagement in a variety of settings.
