Extension office to sponsor 'Age Well' program for seniors


There is one session left in the Marais des Cygnes Extension District's series called Age Well.


Age Well has been a virtual learning series provided over a period of three days beginning in March. The final sessions will be hosted via Zoom and can be viewed in your home or in a group setting at a participating watch site.


The series kicked off in March with presentations on “Mental Health Fitness” and exercises to “Stay Strong Stay Healthy.” In April the topics covered will be “Fire Safety in Your Home” and positive family communication with “Communication Across the Ages.”


The final session on May 24 will be “Avoiding Costly Mistakes” advice on transferring your assets, and “Cooking for 2 or Just You!”


Session times on all three days are from 10 a.m. to 11:30 am.


This learning series encourages individuals to be proactive and “Age Well” physically, mentally, and financially.
