WISE Program Implemented in Highland Park


Over the past 6 weeks, we had the pleasure of participating in the Wellness Initiative for Senior Education (WISE) program at the Highland Park Senior/Youth Center.

The WISE program is a wellness and prevention program for older adults, designed to help them celebrate healthy aging, make healthy lifestyle choices. It provides valuable educational services to older adults on topics including nutrition and exercise, medication use, stress management, depression and substance abuse.

We had 14 seniors throughout the entire of the program. It was very well attended and very well received. On the last day so many of the participates thanked us, talked about what an amazing program it was, how fun every week was, what a good vibe the classes had, and asked what other senior programs we offer because they wanted us back for more.
