Programs & Classes

Class offerings, schedules and screenings vary over the course of a year in location and workshops.  Please check with LifeSpan Resources for current dates and times for programs listed.

Some of our current offerings include:

Tai Chi for Arthritis

Tai Chi for Arthritis Medical authorities agree that suitable exercise for people with arthritis should incorporate components that can improve muscular strength, flexibility, and fitness.

Increased muscular strength supports and protects joints, which will reduce pain.  Flexibility exercises also help to reduce pain and stiffness, thus improving mobility.  Stamina or fitness is important for overall health and proper function of your heart, lungs and muscles.

Tai Chi for Arthritis helps people with arthritis to improve all these and more. It improves balance both mentally and physically thus significantly reduces the rate of fall of the older adults. Additional benefits include improving relaxation, vitality, posture, and immunity.

Tai Chi for Arthritis is offered at our Joe Rhoads Senior Center in Corydon, Indiana with certified Master Rick Haines as our instructor.  Rick teaches the class two days per week at the center.

Walk with Ease

Walk with Ease
Walk With Ease is a 6-week walking, exercising and education program proven to  reduce pain, increase balance and strength, and improve overall health. The program will help motivate you to get in great shape and allow you to walk safely and comfortably.  Several of LifeSpan Resource’s congregate centers offer this fun, group-walking program on a regular basis. 


A Matter of Balance

A Matter of Balance
A Matter of Balance is an 8-week structured group intervention that emphasizes practical strategies to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise to increase strength and balance.  This program is offered through various community partnerships.  Please call Ramona Miller for current workshop dates: 812- 206-7936.




Bingocize® is a 10-week, evidence-based health promotion program that combines exercise and health information with the familiar game of bingo, which is a great and fun way to get people moving and socializing. It’s meant to be played twice a week on nonconsecutive days. Each session usually lasts 45-60 minutes. We have various “curriculum” workshops such as Exercise Only, Falls Prevention, and Nutrition, so there is always a variety of information presented.

The overall goals of the program are to help older adults:

  • Improve and/or maintain mobility and independence
  • Learn and use health information focused on falls reduction, improved nutrition, and other health­ related behaviors
  • Engage older adults in social settings

Bingocizers complete a series of strategically inserted exercises designed to increase or decrease the intensity and volume of exercise. Health education questions are also inserted into the game. Participants rest while numbers are called for the bingo game, then complete strategically inserted exercises or health education questions, resting again during number calling, and so on. This pattern is continued until a Bingocizer wins the game. Small prizes (some included with program) are awarded to winners. Additional games are played until all planned exercises are completed.

Bingocize® is an evidence-based program that meets the highest-level criteria for disease prevention and health promotion programs, as established by the Active Community Living/Administration on Aging (ACL/AoA) Evidence-Based Programs Review Committee.
