“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.”
MNRAAA has begun its journey with the Aging Mastery Program® (AMP). AMP is a product of the National Council on Aging and is offered in two unique ways: classroom style and independent self-starter kits. Both options have courses that focus on exercise, sleep, healthy eating and hydration, financial fitness, advanced planning, health relationships, falls prevention and more.
All AMP program materials and resources align with the overarching goal of helping people enjoy meaningful, good lives. With more people participating in the quest for Aging Mastery, MNRAAA hopes to gradually change societal expectations about the capacities, roles and responsibilities of older adults and to create fun and easy-to-follow pathways for staying healthy, aging in place and getting more out of life.
This program is currently being offered in three communities within the MNRAAA service area: Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop Community Education, Graceville Community Center and Southwest Minnesota Opportunity Council. Future programs will also be scheduled in additional MNRAAA communities. AMP starter kits are available at both MNRAAA office locations.
