Posted: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 by: Kari Bucher | Category: Health


Are you 55 years or older and looking for an opportunity to learn how to stay healthy and meet new people? If so, Lutheran Village at Wolf Creek and Harbor are partnering to offer a 6-week series of seminars beginning July 30, 2014.

The free Wellness Initiative for Senior Education (WISE) program will cover a wide range of topics related to aging and wellness. The classes will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. every Wednesday from July 30 to September 3, 2014, in the first floor dining room. Participants should enter the building through the Pineview entrance. Coffee and water will be available.

Participants in this fun and educational program will: learn about the aging process and how to make healthy lifestyle choices; celebrate this exciting stage of life and all the benefits that come with it; discuss risk factors and behaviors they should avoid to stay healthy; examine how alcohol, prescription medications and over-the-counter medications affect seniors differently and how they can avoid problems; and learn how to use simple tools to help feel more empowered about their health and the health care they receive.

Participants who successfully complete the program – by attending at least 4 out of the 6 classes – will receive a free $50 gift card. To register, please call Sue Boyne at 419-861-5619.
