Wellness Initiative For Senior Education (WISE)

This 6-session program celebrates healthy aging by educating older adults about the positive aspects of growing older, maintaining a positive attitude and developing a comprehensive plan for working with all your health care professionals. Participants gain an understanding of common aging issues so they can avoid problems associated with the interaction of over-the-counter, prescription medication, herbal remedies and alcohol while supporting their ability to make positive lifestyle choices as they age.

Each session covers a new topic, such as myths around aging, positive focus, medicines and interactions, creating a health plan for managing your relationships with health care professionals, and creating goals and making the best use of your life experiences and wisdom.
