Seniors & Adults

The Senior Wellness program provides holistic activities and diverse services which address the physical, spiritual, educational and social well-being needs of older adults. Our innovative classes are a mixture of a gentle cardio workout with yoga, meditation and Tai Chi exercises. Lead by our trained instructors, these calming movements help reduce stress and maintain flexibility, balance and healthy joints. There is plenty of social time for conversations and we serve delicious, nutritious snacks as well. All classes are at no cost. Drop-in, no registration needed. For more information, call Martha DeLeon 773.463.1600 ext.221 or email marthad@concordiaplace.org.

Our Friendly Visitor Program helps seniors maintain independent lives by providing free transportation assistance and support services for adults, 65 years and older, living on the north side of Chicago. Our goal is to provide the human connection needed to enhance a senior’s quality of life, also to help reduce loneliness and provide information on available support services. Our trained and caring volunteers provide support with errands such as transportation for grocery shopping, medical appointments, social outings and, most importantly, being a friendly visitor. To setup an appointment or for more information, call Martha DeLeon at 773.463.1600 ext. 221 or email marthad@concordiaplace.org.
