A comprehensive and fun approach to living that celebrates the gift of longevity is what participants will find in a program being offered beginning in September by the 50 Plus Department of Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) focuses on positivity and simple changes that can make a big difference in creating healthy habits. The program combines goal setting, daily practices and peer support to help participants make meaningful changes in their lives. It covers a broad range of topics with local experts helping to teach the curriculum. Sessions will include:

  • “Navigating Longer Lives”
  • “Exercise and You”
  • “Sleep, Healthy eating”
  • “Financial Fitness”
  • “Advanced Planning”
  • “Healthy Relationships”
  • “Medication Management”
  • “Falls Prevention”
  • “Community Engagement”

Participants will receive educational materials and incentives throughout the 10-week program.

AMP is more than classroom learning, as organizers hope to build a community to help participants find others who are having similar experiences and connect participants to services and organizations with resources to keep people active, engaged and independent.

The program includes assistance from the Mid-America Regional Council’s KC Communities for All Ages and K-State Research and Extension of Johnson County.

The next AMP session will begin at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, at Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse, 9101 Nall Ave., Prairie Village. The cost for 10 sessions of 90-minute each is $55 per person for Johnson County residents or $61 per person for nonresidents. Call 913-826-2975 for more information.
