Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging is pleased to announce that we will be offering a five-week health and wellness package to residents 55 and over. The program is called the Aging Mastery Program®. It was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA).
This is a wonderful opportunity for older adults to participate in, and reap the benefits of, this cutting edge wellness program. We are currently recruiting adults (ages 55+) to participate in a five-week educational program.
The goal of this program is to empower older adults to make and maintain small but impactful changes. The classes will explore navigating longer lives, physical activity, sleep, healthy eating and hydration, financial fitness, medication management, advanced planning, healthy relationships, falls prevention, and community engagement. For each of these classes, we will provide basic educational materials developed from highly trusted sources, a checklist of potential next steps, and a system for tracking behaviors. Participants will earn points for positive actions and rewards.
We will be having our first educational program on:
October 18, 12:30 p.m.
Graceville Community Center
418 Studdart Avenue
Graceville, MN 56240
