Agency on Aging\Area 4 Invites You To Join The Virtual Education And Information Workshops Now Streaming
During the Pandemic of COVID-19 AAA4 has not skipped a beat with Direct Service programs to help and educate older adults.
As the older adult population has the need for services but is sheltering in place, the Agency on Aging\Area 4 is bringing the programs and educational workshops to their living rooms.
Workshops are being offered by ZOOM and can be viewed with their phones, tablets, or computers. Offering a variety of topics at different time slots, the participant can easily join in. Technical help is offered at each workshop for those in need to ensure they get the maximum benefit of the sessions. All those 60+ are welcome and workshops are free.
Programs include Eat Smart, Live Strong, a four-session series that highlights increasing fruit and vegetable intake and increasing daily physical activity. Mature Edge Job Readiness Program, a series of interactive job readiness sessions preparing the mature worker for a productive and successful search. Live Strong and Safe Fall Prevention Program, a two series class focused on important topics to help older adults reduce their risk of falling. Bingocize, an evidence-based program that combines a bingo-like game with exercise and health education. Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP) helps people with pre-diabetes, diabetes, relatives, and caregivers gain a better understanding of diabetes self-management.
Workshop dates and times vary. Please call Brittany Lathrop at 916-710-8380 for information and registration.
