SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging

Programs

Wellness Classes

The idea of “healthy aging” and "fearless aging" is not a new concept. Over the past several years, it has been growing in popularity enormously. With more baby boomers hitting retirement age every day, and average life expectancy also on the rise, our entire staff is dedicated to helping seniors achieve and maintain healthyt lifestyles through education and promotion of wellness programs. Healthy Aging is a primary focus of the SeniorAge program.

Wellness is the act of making healthy choices that lead to a fulfilling lifestyle. SeniorAge Senior Activity Centers help older adults achieve their goals through a variety of classes and programs.  For example, falls prevention can be achieved through our Matter of Balance classes and pain management through CDSME and PACE arthritis exercise classes.  

If you are interested in working towards a better lifestyle, or looking to maintain your daily regimen, inquire at your local Senior Activity Center about the wellness programs that might benefit you.
