Walworth County UW-Madison, Division of Extension is pleased to once again offer the Aging Mastery Program®, a ten-session, five week, health and wellness package offered to residents age 55 and over. The program was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA).

The goal of the Aging Mastery Program® is to empower older adults to make and maintain small but impactful changes. The classes will explore 10 key topics: 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.

This is a wonderful opportunity for older adults to participate in, and reap the benefits of this cutting-edge wellness program. The program is valued at $60 and currently being offered, at no cost, to class participants free until October of 2021.

Register today to reserve your space! Mondays & Wednesdays from September 27th – October 27th from 11:00 am to Noon

Important! Those wishing to participate must register prior to the class to receive the class materials as well as the virtual zoom link and/or phone number. The registration link: https://go.wisc.edu/wiamp
