Health & Wellness Programs – Live Better!
We can help link you to programs to help you stay active and age well!
Our evidence based health and wellness programs have been tested and proven to help adults in real-world settings and are available to older adults, individuals with chronic conditions, their family members, and/or caregivers.
Health and wellness programs are administered throughout our aging and disability network at various locations across the 34 communities that we serve. Check out a class at your local community center, senior housing communities, places of worship, or another neighborhood site!
The Senior Alliance Health & Wellness classes are:
- Free or low-cost.
- Held in a small-group setting.
- Led by Certified Leaders, Master Trainers, or Instructors who have completed rigorous training before delivering course content.
- Opportunities to help you stay on track. Let us support you on your wellness journey. Most workshops meet as part of a series on a consistent schedule, typically once or twice a week for 6 or more weeks depending on the program.
Whether you are looking to improve your diabetes management, feel more steady and confident on your feet and want ideas to prevent falls, or just want to get fit with some new friends, we have a workshop in your neighborhood just for you!
