Pima Council on Aging announces the Aging Mastery Program

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

AMP is a fun, innovative and person-centered education program that empowers older adults 55 plus 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, relationship, 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 Tuesday, September 12 and continues through November 14, 2017 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Desert Hills Auditorium, 2980 S. Camino del Sol in Green Valley. The registration fee is $99 per person payable in advance. This fee includes all program materials, supplies and light refreshments. Space is limited.
