Program focuses on gaining life

WARREN — Wanting to help people, especially seniors, get active and healthy, the Hope Academy for Autism is hosting the informational program ”Gaining Your Life Back” noon Monday at the Youngstown site, 610 N. Lakevew Ave.

Kimberly Clinkscale, director of Hope Academy with sites in Warren and Youngstown, said she wanted to get seniors and others who might be at home and not able to get around to come to the center ”to gain their life back and feel good about themselves.”

”Some people who I know or who have even worked here could not get around like they used to,” she said.

The event will include exercise, music, games, speakers and refreshments.

”I have people who will speak about what they do to keep their brains functioning. We do not want people sitting at home not doing anything. We want them to do some of the things they used to do,” Clinkscale said.

People from different professions will speak.
