Dear Friends and Members,

On these cold and snowy days, don’t stay at home!  Reserve a seat on the Y Van!  We have transportation Monday through Friday. The van will take you door to door. If you would like more information on using the van for transportation to the Y please speak to Mira Myteberi, Director of CALW Social Services and Education.

The Van is also used to take members of the Center for Adults Living Well @ the Y on trips. Please look in the newsletter under special events for the different places we will be going. I hope you will join us on one of our many trips. If you have any ideas of sites to visit please let us know we are always looking for new and interesting places to go!

On Thursday, February 28 we will go to the Museum of the City of New York.
Exhibits include "The Making of NYC: 400 years of History" and “In the Dugout with Jackie Robinson.”  Includes a bagged lunch - cost $15.00 departs 10:00am. Please see Mira Myteberi for more information.

A Message from Carol Daly, Director of Health & Wellness


This month we begin a new collaboration with doctors from Columbia University to offer a six month series on the importance of Brain Health.  Practical topics such as emotional wellness, getting deep sleep, maintaining maximum mobility, a sharp memory and cognitive abilities will be addressed as they relate to maintaining healthy neurological functions. Please join us for the first introductory talk with  Kiran Thakur, MD & Hiral Shah, MD both Assistant Professors of Neurology at CP on Thursday February 14th at 3PM in the Auditorium during Coffee Hour. 

Since February is Healthy Heart month, this is a great time to get your heart pumping with a new or refreshed exercise routine. You don’t have to run a marathon to support your heart, and in fact, it’s better for your heart (and metabolism) to do shorter, more efficient workouts.  This includes walking or any one of our many exercise classes designed to keep your heart, mind and body and spirit healthy and strong! Feel free to talk with me or our Recreation Therapist Ann Votaw for class recommendations suited to you.
