Please come and join the Handi-Capables Club at Sundial pool for exercise and our monthly social meeting at Fairway. The goal of Handi-Capables is to provide a club specifically for those with physical limitations (chronic or temporary), offering the benefits of both social and fitness programs to enhance life, abilities and enjoyment.
The club meets Tuesday and Thursday at Sundial therapy pool for exercise. The warm water provides buoyancy and improves our member’s balance. There are three pool classes led by qualified instructors. Two classes meet at noon, one class for sitting down and one for those able to stand up. For those that do not require any assistance, the more active meet at 1 pm. For those who need assistance entering the pool, our staff is available with a power lift, ramps and water wheel chairs.
Our social meetings are held at 12:30 pm on the first Monday of the month in the Arizona Room at Fairway Recreation Center at 107th Ave. and Peoria. Past programs have included live entertainment, potlucks, films and Bingo. Refreshments are served at every meeting. The annual Christmas Party has become a tradition and although the venues change, this catered affair is well worth the additional charge.
Membership is $15 per year and is open to all RCSC members, especially those with physical limitations as well as their spouse, partner, friend, or caregiver. Join us whether or not you need our services. Individuals wishing to volunteer are always welcome.
You don’t have to be a member to help us spread the word! Tell your health care professionals and friends about us. Invite those with physical limitations to give us a try – all are welcome. Our members include those living with Parkinson’s, MS, cancer, paraplegic, arthritis, diabetes, cardiac and post-stroke conditions, and those with pre- and post-joint replacements, etc.
Drop by and watch us poolside or be our guest for a complimentary water exercise session. Whether you’re considering membership or just want to be a better resource for those who may be interested in our services, we’d enjoy meeting you!
