Information

What is the secret to successful aging? Believe it or not is has nothing to do with your income, being free from illnesses or a life free from disappointments. Studies have shown that successful aging has more to do with “being optimistic” (instead of “having a positive attitude”), maintaining friendships and choosing to live a healthy lifestyle. These are just a few of many considerations for aging well and making the most of our later years. This lesson will include research related to positive aging as well as a discussion on ageism and how negative stereotypes of aging can contribute to prejudices and even discrimination.

There is no fee to attend this program. Please pre-register by calling 815-933-8337 by February 3.
