Wellness program for older adults offered at Jay Community Center

LifeStream Services is partnering with the Delaware County Prevention Council and Purdue Extension to offer Wellness Initiative for Senior Education (WISE), a free six week wellness program for people 55 and over.

WISE will begin on Wednesday, October 9 at 12pm to 2pm, and continue every Wednesday for six weeks at the Jay Community Center located at 115 E. Water St. Portland, IN 47371.

Participants will learn about the aging process, how to make healthy lifestyle choices, and how to use simple tools to feel empowered in their health. The program will also discuss risk factors and examine how alcohol, prescriptions, and over-the-counter medications affect seniors differently.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided at each session, and all participants will receive a gift bag upon completion of the program. Space is limited to the first 15 people. Register in advance by calling the Delaware County Prevention Council at 765-282-7988.
