The mobility and isolation issues senior citizens face are even more challenging in WV, because of our mountains and transportation systems. Through our relationship with the WV Bureau of Senior Services, and funding from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, Inc., we have partnered with senior centers to open up a whole new world of physical activity – the virtual world, that is. Seven senior centers in different counties have been awarded mini-grants for purchasing Nintendo Wii Game Systems. Now, seniors at these centers can bowl, or play tennis-without leaving the building. In order to assess the effectiveness of this program, WVOM has partnered with Dr. Dina L. Jones, PT, PhD, of WVU.
