Life in our society today is hectic, pulling people in multiple directions almost continually 24-7-365. Much of the talk we hear today is about ‘work-life’ balance, but that seems to be more ‘talk’ than ‘walk’, more ‘work’ than ‘life’. Our adult programs are designed around a balanced approach which, as we continue to develop and integrate new options and services, address all aspects of wellness.
