The Mower County Senior Center still has openings for the AMP Program, a ten-week health and wellness program for residents 55 and over.

The program is called the Aging Mastery Program.  If you haven’t taken these classes yet, this is a wonderful opportunity for adults to participate in and reap the benefits of this cutting edge wellness program.

The goal of this program is to empower older adults to make and maintain small but impactful changes. The classes will explore navigating longer lives, physical activity, sleep, healthy eating and hydration, financial fitness, medication management, advanced planning, healthy relationships, fall 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.

Classes start Tuesday and continue until June 5 at 2 p.m. every Tuesday. If you would like to check out one or more classes feel free to join us.

If you are interested in learning more call Teresa at the senior center at 1-507-481-3332. We hope to recruit a wide range of participants. If this program piques your interest stop by or call to learn more.

Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and sandwich for 50 cents. Tuesday we are having scalloped potatoes and ham in the coffee shop for only $2. You are always welcome at the center. See you here.
