About

We need volunteers to assist participants in a free water exercise program which is designed for those adults who cannot get exercise on land due to mobility restrictions due to Parkinson's Disease, MS, RA, stroke, knee or hip replacement or other causes. Some participants need help in the dressing room, some need help getting to the pool and some need help while in the water. Your help will allow participants to greatly improve the quality of their lives. We meet Thursdays from 12:45-2:45 PM at the Ocean County YMCA from mid September until mid June. The first hour we are in the pool, the second hour we have a socail hour in a meeting room adjacent to the pool. Volunteers do not have to commit to come every week but to come only when they can.
