Older Adults


We have 3 certified teachers in the Older Adult Program and at 8 different facilities. Programs for older adults are designed to offer lifelong education that will provide opportunities for personal growth and development, community involvement, survival skills needed for self-maintenance, and economic self-sufficiency.

Content of course offerings includes, but is not limited to, understanding the aging process and the role of nutrition and exercise in maintaining good health, applying principles of sound consumerism and financial management, building positive relationships and support systems, and developing competencies, skills, and interests that assist in enhancing the quality of life.

These classes are offered at over eight locations including schools, senior centers, community centers, retirement, and convalescent homes.
