Residents at the Bedford Community Center celebrated National Senior Health and Fitness Day with a lively outdoor event on Bedford Lane yesterday. Some participants strolled in their wheelchairs while others enjoyed a walk in the sun, all under the guidance of the center’s therapy department.

The festivities included chair exercises set to the upbeat tunes of Motown and 70s hits, bringing smiles and movement to all attendees. “At Bedford Care Center, one of our goals is to keep our residents healthy, physically fit, and as independent as possible,” said Maria Mitchell Smith, the Activities Director.

To keep everyone refreshed, a hydration station offered popsicles, sno cones, water, and Powerade. A snack bar featuring nacho cheese and cotton candy added to the fun atmosphere. The sunny day saw some residents dancing, while others enjoyed the music and camaraderie.
