After a hip or knee replacement, you may be cautious about returning to exercise.

You may even have an injury and are not sure if exercise would help or hurt. The Johnson Memorial Medical Center Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department is offering a Complimentary Physical Therapy Consultation at the Enfield Senior Center on Tuesday, August 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. Schedule your complimentary private consultation with a Physical Therapist and ask any questions you have.

Due to numerous requests, we’ve planned a wonderful day at the New York Botanical Garden, on September 4, to view a special exhibit “Monet’s Garden”. The Botanical Garden is a National Historic Landmark and is celebrating its 120th anniversary with a special exhibit celebrating impressionist painter, Claude Monet. This stunning tribute showcases a seasonally changing interpretation of the garden that inspired his art. In addition, two rarely seen paintings by the artist, one of which has never been shown in the United States, will be on exhibition. Cost is $80 per person. Reservations are being taken at the Senior Center front desk.
