Hendricks County Senior Services Aging Mastery Program Begins in October

Are you considering retirement or have you recently retired? Have you been retired for a while and are wondering if you are maximizing the opportunities of retirement? Are you interested in learning ways to improve the quality of your life as you age? If so, the Hendricks County Senior Center is offering a course to assist you.

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP), developed by the National Council on Aging, is a 10-week, researched-based program that provides information that can lead “to higher levels of physical and emotional well-being, increased civic engagement, and stronger social connectedness.” Its focus embraces the gift of longer lives by encouraging simple life changes to enable more meaningful lives.

Throughout the program, participants will explore the topics of navigating longer lives, exercise, sleep, healthy eating & hydration, financial fitness, advance planning, healthy relationships, medication management, fall prevention, and community engagement in the retirement years. By examining the realities of aging in relation to each area, assessing individual strengths and weaknesses, and making small meaningful changes, participants can bring simple yet powerful changes to their lives.

“The Aging Mastery Program is an incredible opportunity for seniors to evaluate their current lifestyle and discover ways to measurably improve the quality of their lives,” explains facilitator Jan Dorsey.  “I am so impressed with the depth of the material individuals are given to help them look closely at their lives, and the simple strategies for making small changes that lead to huge benefits.”

The AMP workshop will be held at the Hendricks County Senior Center, 1201 Sycamore Lane in Danville from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm starting Tuesday, October 8 and successive Tuesdays through December 10.  Cost for the program is only $30, thanks to a grant from CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions. Space is limited so register early.  Registration and payment can be made at the Senior Center.  For more information call 317-745-4303.
