July 2019

Living Well As We Age and the Fountain of Wellness Brain Change Project
Presented by Jill Michelin, Psychogeriatric Resource Consultant
Tuesday, July 16
10:30am – 11:30am
We are all living longer despite the fact that many seniors often have one or more chronic conditions associated with the aging process. Research is  showing more and more that small life changes can have huge impacts in how we feel and cope with our lives. The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of life keep us balanced, so it is important to pay attention to these areas and make changes as we go. The benefits of exercise, diet, social activity, and strong links to family and friends aid to keep us balanced and healthy.
