Center 50 + Bus Wellness on Wheels

August 27, 2020

The Center 50+ Van stands for Wellness on Wheels. The WOW Van will be designed with the “WOW”- giving additional visibility to Center 50+ and the senior services we provide throughout the community. The van is re-purposed to deliver services to home-bound seniors, adult foster care, community care settings, age 55+neighborhoods and apartments, clubhouses, and pop-up programs throughout the whole community. Our focus is on connecting older adults to the 7-dimensions of wellness which are: spiritual, physical, emotional, career, intellectual, environmental, and social.

The WOW Van activities include:

  • Fitness and wellness programs
  • Personal training
  • Improving mobility
  • Nutrition education
  •  Arts and crafts
  • Brain health
  • Puzzles
  • Games
  • Lifelong learning

The WOW Van services provided:

  • Fall prevention
  • Fix-it brigade
  • Home safety inspections
  • Friendly visitor
  • Technology tutoring
  • Birthday deliveries.

We will continue to evaluate what other Center 50+ programs and activities could be incorporated into this outreach. We look forward to serving our community.
