Aging Innovatively to offer guidance on healthy aging
Aging Innovatively, a five-week course led by professionals from St. Ambrose University, will provide education and strategies for healthy aging; discuss home safety, supports, and assistive technology available; help individuals re-engage in meaningful life activities; and problem-solve to reduce or remove barriers.
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 co- ordinator.
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 Tuesday afternoons, April 2-30, 3-5 p.m. All sessions except April 9 will be held at St. Paul. The April 9 session will be held at Jim’s Place near the St. Ambrose campus. Spots are limited. To learn more and sign up, please contact Anne Lansing at 563-333-6128 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The program is free.
