“Toughness is in the soul and spirit, and not in muscles” – Alex Karras

“Toughness is in the soul and spirit, and not in muscles” – Alex Karras

Each January, people tend to be weary from holiday festivities that took place over the past two months.  This is no different for senior citizens.  However, our bodies are our temples and should be treated with care.  Aging adults may or may not be able to run a 5K or perform repetitions of pushups, but there are always options to keep moving.  Most aging adults struggle with the vicious cycle of complacency due to the inability to move in the manner they were accustomed to because of joint problems, heart issues, arthritis and more.  This is why good circulation and muscle stability are key factors for ensuring long-term mobility.

Brenda Munden, owner of Fun Size Fitness and Keller, TX resident is a Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach who is not only focused on helping people achieve and maintain their health and fitness goals, but is also very passionate about providing positive solutions for senior citizens.  This is why Mid-Cities Care Corps has invited Brenda to attend the next Senior Social with MCCC on January 17th to share some techniques and tips that seniors can use to keep moving and stay healthy.   Brenda is known for her contagious upbeat personality which is why her clients get excited and energized about their journey to healthy living and maintaining a life-style to ensure long-term success.

 

Brenda inspires those around her to find balance and embrace faith, family, fitness and nutrition.  When she is not running her own business, you can find Brenda at Battleground Fitness where she continues to train loyal clients or on the web sharing health and fitness tips with humor.  Don’t miss Brenda’s video series this month on Facebook and Twitter.

Holiday Outreach Is In Full Swing

Thanks to our volunteers, we were able to collect an abundance of food and gifts to be distributed to many young-at-heart seniors in Northeast Tarrant County who may not otherwise experience the spirit of the season. On December 10th, Mid-Cities Care Corps volunteers will meet at First United Methodist in Colleyville to wrap gifts, assemble food items  and deliver bags to a long list of seniors who need support. This program continues to lift spirits to local seniors during a busy holiday season that leaves many feeling secluded.  Learn more about MCCC and how you can get involved by by contacting us, subscribing to our newsletter, following us on Twitter or liking our Facebook Page.

Phone Friends Program Combats Isolation

Phone Friends Program Combats Isolation

Isolation is a valid concern amongst the senior citizen market. There are many ways to help our senior neighbors combat the feeling of isolation, especially during the holiday season when life gets too busy.  Social outreach is a rewarding  means of giving back, whether it is of your time, resources or money.   The Phone Friends program that Mid-Cities Care Corps has in place is one of several social outreach programs offered and implemented by the many volunteers that make up the organization.  The program connects seniors with a friend who is committed to call each week.  Smiles are created and friendships are built.  We will continue this series on isolation with other programs offered by Mid-Cities Care Corps.  In the meantime, please connect with us if you are interested in volunteering, donating or even becoming a client.  If you are not already on our mailing list, go to our contact page and sign up.  We would love to hear from you.
