AAACAP speaks at Senior Wellness Expo

Monday, February 09, 2015

Program managers with the Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area (AAACAP) will lead discussions about the benefits of evidence based programs during the Senior Wellness Expo on Feb. 24.

Evidence based programs teach people how to mentally, physically and emotionally address issues caused by becoming an older adult. For several years, AAACAP has offered Matter of Balance courses, which teach fall prevention methods to reduce the fear and risk of falling, and Stress Busting courses, which help Alzheimer’s caregivers mitigate stress.

AAACAP program coordinators will discuss benefits of two new programs – Chronic Disease Self-Management and Diabetes Self-Management. The programs strive to empower older adults to learn about nutrition, exercise choices and treatment options and effective ways to talk to doctors and family about their disease.

Information about other agency services such as Medicare benefits counseling and medication screening will be available at the expo.

The Senior Wellness Expo, sponsored by Austin Senior Resource Alliance, will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Feb. 24, at the Lakeway Activity Center, 105 Cross Creek, Lakeway, Texas.
