EAST WENATCHEE, Wash., September 13, 2015 - Penny and Carl Buick, local SAIL coordinators in East Wenatchee, share how the program has helped them as well as the attendees.
The class helps people with balance, through exercising, stretching and walking; and includes fun games and simple aerobics. They find that it creates an opportunity for friendships in the community.
This program can be replicated in almost any community. SAIL can be use as a part of Adventist Community Services programs in your local church. SAIL -- Staying Active and Independent for Life -- is a governmental program that local groups can utilize to help people stay active so they will not fall.
