Aging Mastery Program offered in Alexandria

Vital Living Alexandria is offering an opportunity for older adults to reap the benefits of a cutting-edge wellness program. The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) is a health and wellness package developed by the National Council on Aging.

Classes will be held Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. from April 7 to June 9 at the Alexandria Area High School.

The program goal is to empower adults age 55-plus to make and maintain small but impactful changes. The classes, presented by local experts, will explore navigating longer lives, physical activity, sleep, healthy eating and hydration, financial fitness, medication management, advanced planning, healthy relationships, falls prevention, and community engagement.

For each of these classes, Vital Living Alexandria 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.

The special introductory "pilot pricing" is $20 for the 10-session course. The AMP fee is regularly $100. Register with Alexandria Community Education at (320) 762-3310.
