Danville Family YMCA
The Danville Family YMCA honors a program called Silver Sneakers. This program is serviced by Healthways through various insurance companies. If an individual has a certain insurance plan through one of these companies, he or she can have a membership to the Y paid for by their insurance company through Healthways. The insurance companies contact their clients if this program is included in their particular insurance package, and Healthways will send the individual a membership card. Once that card is received, the only need to show up at the Y. We document each visit and are then reimbursed through Healthways for each visit.
This program makes up just about 90% of our Senior population within the Y. Because they feel like they are getting something for FREE it motivates them to come out and join us! There is a great community and sense of belonging within the Silver Sneakers crew.
DON’T GET THEM CONFUSED! The class Silver Sneakers is NOT for Silver Sneakers members only- it’s for everyone! Specifically designed by the Silver Sneakers program to help maintain and improve mobility. The exercises are done from a chair and includes small weights and resistance bands.
