May is Older Americans Month

May is Older Americans Month and the Door County YMCA encourages all older adults in Door County to get motivated and develop behaviors that are crucial to healthy aging, including healthy eating, increasing physical activity and social interaction.
“Older adults are the fastest-growing segment of the Y and their health and wellness needs are different than a generation ago,” said Steve Vickman, director of Corporate Wellness at the Door County YMCA. “Today’s older adults want to be more active and engaged, and the Y can provide the needed guidance to help them reach health goals, particularly when it comes to chronic disease prevention.”
The Y offers many ways for active older adults to live healthier including Aqualite, Chair Yoga, Senior Strength, Twinges in the Hinges and many other classes. For more information visit
