Jeopary -like game teaches facts about aging
At the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center we recognize that with every new decade of life our bodies change the rules on us. You might wake up one day with arthritic knees, or realize that eating peppers is not something your digestive tract can handle any longer.
Or now we must figure out how to best handle midnight runs to the restroom. Aging is a process, and we have to learn new things about aging.
Clackamas County's Older Adult Behavioral Health Specialist Kim Whitely has developed a fun way to inform us of our aging selves. She has established an engaging version of the popular show "Jeopardy," using facts about older adult physical and behavioral health and local resources to help us. The game takes approximately one hour to play and small prizes will be provided to participants. This isn't only a fun game but generates discussions on health topics. Participant are encouraged to bring questions. Come play "Jeopardy" from 2-3 p.m. Tuesday, March 24. Cost is $5 per person.
Lunch this week features cashew chicken Friday, March 13 and corned beef and cabbage Monday, March 16, followed by bacon and mushroom quiche Wednesday, March 18. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
