(FORT WORTH, Texas – Sept. 16, 2019) — As part of its commitment to help local seniors “live life to the fullest,” Care N’ Care (HMO/PPO) Health Plan will be one of the sponsors of the Tarrant County Senior’s Jamboree on Sept. 26 in Fort Worth. The event will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the YMCA Camp Carter at 6200 Sand Springs Road.
At the Jamboree, seniors will have the opportunity to discover the wealth of health-related resources available right in their own community as well as play a variety of games, participate in fitness demonstrations from SilverSneakers® (a benefit partner of Care N’ Care) and listen to music while enjoying lunch. Current and alumni cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys will also be on hand to meet attendees and share in the day’s fun.
“The local senior community is a vital part of what makes North Texas such a wonderful place to live and work,” said Wendy Karsten, CEO of Care N’ Care. “This jamboree was created to celebrate the power of seniors and to remind seniors that remaining physically, mentally and socially active is the key to good health.”
The Tarrant County Senior’s Jamboree is just one of the many community activities in which Care N’ Care is actively involved throughout the year. In May, Care N’ Care was one of the sponsors of the Senior Synergy Expo in Fort Worth, and in February the health plan sponsored the Aging Well Expo in Arlington. In addition, throughout the year Care N’ Care’s Care N’ Community program works hand in hand with an array of local community partners to create an intergenerational support system that promotes well-being, empowerment and independence for safe and vibrant aging. Some of these programs stress physical activity, such as water aerobics or tai chi in the park; some are strictly social, such as adult coloring classes or Bingo; and some are educational, such as safety tips from local police or healthcare tips from local doctors and nurses.
