Senior Services Kicks off Online Classes to Keep Seniors Connected and Active

April 20, 2020
Classes intended to help seniors maintain their physical and emotional health

The Department of Senior Services wants seniors to maintain their health and wellness. The Department has initiated online classes to allow seniors to remain active and connected to their classes as Fulton County continues to adhere to social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

A variety of online classes began Monday, April 13, 2020. They include:

• Exercise classes that include line dancing, stretch and exercise, Yoga, and Tai Chi
• Fall Prevention
• Better Choices/Better U (Strategies for healthier eating)
• Cooking and Learning with Care – Cooking Demonstration
• Basic Computer
• Introduction to iPhone/iPad
• Ins and Outs of Audition Preparations (for those who are interested in entering the entertainment industry)

Senior Services Director Ladisa Onyiliogwu emphasizes the importance of keeping seniors engaged. “We are providing the necessary resources to keep Fulton County seniors active and connected. We know that physical activity and connections with others are vital for seniors to maintain good physical and emotional health,” said Onyiliogwu.

Seniors who want to participate can visit for information about available classes and registration requirements or email and use the subject line ‘Senior Virtual Programming’.

The online classes will continue in the future after multipurpose facilities reopen in order to allow greater access to classes by those seniors who are unable to participate because of full facility classes as well as those who are unable to get to classes on a specific day or time.

For information about other programs offered by Senior Services, seniors can call the STARline at 404-613-6000.
