The Council on Aging office has applications and can provide information and help to seniors.

Tai chi classes: The Council on Aging offers tai chi each Thursday at 9 a.m. and the cost is $5 per one-hour session.

Tai chi helps reduce stress and anxiety, and also helps increase flexibility and balance. It is a self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion. It is low impact and suitable for older adults.

More information is available by calling 978-374-2390.

Continuing your education: The COOL Program at Northern Essex Community College offers interesting and challenging education opportunities for life-long learners who are 50 and older.
