Fit and Well Seniors

DC-Based Program


Do you worry about mom or grandpa sitting at home with little physical activity and no one to take care of them as they grow more frail every day? So are we.

That’s why the Y’s Fit & Well Seniors caters to the needs of more than 100,000 seniors residing in DC, many of whom are widowed, living on a modest income and have limited access to activities. Launched in 2010 in partnership with CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, this program helps seniors find energy, movement and a support network.

We offer 119 land and 26 aquatics classes in all 8 Wards of DC in addition to health and lifestyle assessments, inter-generational activities, social clubs and a mobile unit – all free of charge. Over 5,000 seniors participate in this program each year.

Help us continue to enrich the lives of DC area seniors; make a donation today.

If you are interested in supporting this program, please email Janice Williams! If you’re a senior that would like to get involved, let us help you rediscover the vibrancy of life by calling us at 202-232-6700.
