Wellness Programs

The Area Agency on Aging offers free wellness programs presented either virtually or at community locations throughout our nine-county region. Click on the program names below for more information.

Healthy Living/Healthy U is a program proven to improve the health and well-being for people living with long-term/chronic health conditions. You set your own goals, priorities, and follow your own timeline week-by-week to find what steps work best. We offer three evidence-based programs developed by the Self-Management Resource Center:

  • Healthy Living with Chronic Conditions addresses managing day-to-day concerns arthritis, heart and/or lung diseases, obesity, high blood pressure, cancer, depression and more.
  • Healthy Living with Diabetes focuses on managing and preventing Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Healthy Living with Chronic Pain addresses living with daily pain and strategies toward helping to alleviate its impact on each day.

Aging Mastery Program includes 10 sessions presented by experts that focus on managing health, remaining economically secure, and contributing actively to society. These are currently limited to two contracted sites.

The Agency contracts with Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley to offer Matter of Balance that emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls and increase activity levels.

The Agency contracts with Kettering Health to offer Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a six-week workshop for family caregivers to learn how to care for themselves while caring for others.

Additional programs hosted by the Agency may be listed when available.

Upcoming workshops are listed below. Please check back throughout the year as more workshops are scheduled. We appreciate your interest and hope to meet you at a future workshop!

Please contact Karin Nevius (or call 937-341-3001) for additional information, if you are interested in training to be a workshop leader, or partnering with the Agency as a workshop host site.
