St. Paul is once again partnering with St. Ambrose University to bring Aging Innovatively to the community. Learn new strategies to help yourself live well as you age. In this five-week program, St. Ambrose doctoral students and faculty from the Occupational Therapy department at SAU will talk about successfully aging in place, brain health, new assistive technology, and more. Each week a professor will lead a discussion and students will share new innovations and information at 4-5 learning stations. Come and learn how to improve or maintain quality of life as we age.
The goals are to help people stay independent in their home and engaged in their community as long as possible, improve and maintain quality of life, and help continue taking part in meaningful life activities, said Anne Lansing, program coordinator.
Participants will work with occupational health department faculty, staff, and students from St. Ambrose on assessment, establishing goals, and developing steps to achieve those goals.
Sessions will be held on Friday mornings, Feb. 19-March 26, 9-11 a.m. Spots are limited. Masks, social distancing, and safe measures will be taken during this in-person program. Sign-up online at stpaulqc.org/signups. The program is free. To learn more, please contact Beth Laureijs, email@example.com, 563-326-3547, ext. 215.
