Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging in partnership with the Madelia Community Hospital Foundation, is pleased to announce that we are the first in the area to offer an innovative new ten-session health and wellness program to area community members 55 and over. The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and has been successful at helping older adults build their own playbook for aging well.
This is a wonderful opportunity for older adults to participate in, and reap the benefits of, this cutting edge program. We are currently recruiting 20 adults, ages 55 + to participate in the ten-session educational program.
AMP is a fun, innovative, and person-centered education program that empowers participants to embrace their gift of longevity by spending more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others. The program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that lead to improved health, stronger economic security, enhanced well-being, and increased societal participation.
We will host an informational meeting on March 6th at 10:00 AM at the Madelia Branch Library.
Classes will be Fridays, March 13th through April 17th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Watonwan County Library – Madelia.
