      The practice of tai chi puts balance into 54-year-old June Getford’s life. “I’ve been fascinated by tai chi. The movement, the meditation, the sense of balance and memory exercise.” She uses it as a release both mentally and physically. “If I am having hip pain it allows me to adjust my walking or standing positions, sitting positions into a more evenly weighted stance.” Science is now seeing the value in exercises like tai chi, for the elderly in particular. Study after study finds it may improve health conditions ranging from fibromyalgia to Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s. “Exercise is probably the most effective way to improve cognitive ability. In order to do that the exercise should include movement, complexity and memory, which tai chi does,” says Dr. Marc Rowe, a tai chi instructor at Lee Memorial Health System. Lee Memorial Health System offers tai chi classes for seniors. It helps keep them on their feet and moving in the right direction. “About 50% of people over 80 have lost enough fitness that they can’t do the normal chores to make themselves independent around the house. So we want to develop a package, a comprehensive program with tai chi as its centerpiece to train seniors to be more functional and independent,” says Dr. Rowe. It doesn’t take long for require much space, just a series of thoughtful movements that give June and others peace of mind. “I’m hoping it will keep me more stable as I age, aging graceful in that sense,” sys Getford. “I’m teaching them to speak a little dance they can take home and for 15 minutes a day they can quietly go out in their patio or their yard and maybe with a friend, do their tai chi,” says Dr. Rowe.

                  Not since the class of 2002 has there been such dominance. And this year, the seniors made sure the class of 2012 would be remembered as they shut out an upstart sophomore class, 14-0. As the whistle blew the final time on this early spring day, the seniors celebrated a three-peat victory in the annual Powder Puff football game, March 23. Playing evening and night spring Powder Puff has become a new tradition for the lady footballers who are not accustomed to playing their sport under the lights in front of the still newly constructed grandstands (2011). While the girls were duking it out on the North Field, the boys set up for cheers on the sidelines and often were left wondering now their female counterparts do those students? Some relented and said, "cheerleading indeed is a sport." While sophomores earned second place in 2012, the freshmen took on the juniors and defeated the upperclassmen, 20-6. Some wondered aloud whether the rookies might give the sophomores a run for their money in next year's title game, much to the chagrin of the juniors.

                  • Rego Park Senior Center: One For All


                    from Voices of NY / Added

                    As Baby Boomers age, senior advocates and the New York City administrators are bracing themselves for an influx of retirees that is expected to increase New York City’s aging population by a third between now and 2030. On Thursdays at Rego Park Senior Center in Queens, a hundred or so elderly visitors bounce from line dancing to floral design class to a “hot topics” discussion session. In the center’s large main hall, splashed with flags, posters and activity boards, some visitors play mahjong for hours, while the more athletic seniors abandon their walkers for a ping-pong paddle. “It’s fun, and makes me so happy because I have somewhere to go,” said Rose Visconte, a former radio announcer who comes to Rego Park four days a week, speaking in Chinese. “In the Philippines, I already learned Tai Chi. So, when I came here, I come to the senior center and lead the Tai-Chi Fan, Tai-Chi sword. I’m already 77 years old. When you want to be a healthy and happy person, do more activities.” Administrators at senior centers in immigrant enclaves such as Rego Park have learned that seniors are more likely to show up at programs that offer activities they’re familiar with, as well as opportunities to hobnob with others that speak the same language.

                    • India Home: All For One


                      from Voices of NY / Added

                      As Baby Boomers age, senior advocates and the New York City administrators are bracing themselves for an influx of retirees that is expected to increase New York City’s aging population by a third between now and 2030. Rachit Manglani, a home care coordinator at India Home, talks to seniors one–on-one about health care and how to find help with their medical needs. Many South Asian seniors have trouble getting that kind of information in their own community, he said. “It’s a very closed society till now,” said Manglani. “Socialization is a must… [India Home] is one place where they get all these services under one roof. All this information, home care, everything, under one roof.” Yoga classes are among the activities on offer at India Home, a roving senior center in Queens. Many of India Home’s participants speak a little English, but for some, their language skills are not sharp enough to navigate the social security system, even with the translation services available at city agencies. The participants say they prefer to get the information at India Home, in their own language. “We can get knowledge about how to survive… if you have low income, how to get help from government,” said Bhanu J. Shah, 66. Sometimes, she said, she takes the information she learns here and passes it on to friends and family members. In that way, South Asian seniors help each other and themselves, Shah said.
