New Aging Mastery Program – Beginning February 2018

It is not a secret that people are living longer. With that comes the new realities of aging from managing health to working toward financial stability. In partnership with the National Council on Aging (NCOA), Pima Council on Aging is pleased to bring the Aging Mastery Program (AMP), a ten-week health and well-being program to Tucson and surrounding areas.

AMP is a fun, innovative and person-centered education program that empowers older adults 55+ to make and maintain small but impactful lifestyle changes. This comprehensive approach to aging well helps participants gain new skills and make new friends while focusing on key aspects of health, finance, relationships, personal growth and community involvement.

Each week a community expert will present on the topic for the week. Interactive activities related to the topic will enable everyone to continue the learning process. Topics include Navigating Longer Lives: The Basics of Aging Mastery, Exercise and You, Healthy Eating and Hydration, Medication Management, Sleep, Financial Fitness, Advance Planning, Healthy Relationships, Fall Prevention and Community Engagement.

Equally important, AMP encourages aging mastery developing sustainable behaviors across many areas of life that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security and overall well-being.

The program begins Thursday, February 15 and continues through April 19, 2018 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm at the Randolph Recreation Center, 200 S. Alvernon Way in Tucson. The registration fee is $99 per person payable in advance. This fee includes all program materials, supplies and light refreshments. Space is limited.
