This Presentation Won’t Be a Snore!  Sleep Apnea

Thursday, April 19th
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
Rm 232, upstairs at the Santa Clara Senior Center
Free of charge, no registration required.

Breathe California of the Bay Area returns for another informative and interesting talk, this time on sleep apnea.

Roughly 90% of people experiencing obstructive sleep apnea are not diagnosed and effectively treated, because they are unaware of how dangerous the symptoms are. If your bed buddy is keeping you awake, or you find yourself nodding off any time you sit down for a minute, come learn how to tell if sleep apnea is the problem and what to do about it. 

As the local lung health leader, Breathe California of the Bay Area fights lung disease in all its forms and works with its communities to promote lung health. This presentation focuses on sleep apnea. One of Breathe California’s services, the Sleep Safe Program, provides low-cost diagnostic tests and CPAP machines to qualified, uninsured individuals.

Join us for an informative talk - literally, it could save your life.

 

Wheelchair Exercise
 
Tuesday, April 24 or Thursday, April 26
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Room 222, upstairs at the Santa Clara Senior Center
Free of charge, no registration required

This one-time free trial offers you an opportunity to meet the instructor, hear about the class, and participate in a basic lesson.   

This workout is intended for seniors that utilize a wheelchair as their primary means of mobility. The goal of this exercise program is to maintain and/or improve range of motion by using resistance.  Students will learn simple stretching exercises to decrease further contractures and prevent pressure areas by learning weight shifting techniques. Participants should be able to maneuver their wheelchair with minimal assistance and are expected to follow simple exercises with minimal supervision.
