Hardyston - The Center for Prevention and Counseling will host WISE, a wellness program for adults ages 55 and up at the YMCA in Hardyston in the Youth Room starting Thursday Jan. 17. The Wellness Initiative for Senior Education program (WISE) is a six-week program Thursdays from 12:30 p.m. -2:30 p.m. that celebrates healthy aging and educates older adults on a variety of topics. Workshop topics include alternative approaches to pain management, safe use of medications, how to communicate with your healthcare provider and how to make healthy lifestyle choices. WISE empowers participants to become more aware of how they can take control of their health and wellness. It also provides participants with an opportunity to socialize and connect with services available to them in their community. A complimentary lunch will be provided at each session and a $25.00 gift card incentive is provided to those participants that attend 5 out of 6 WISE sessions.

In an effort to address Alternative Approaches to Pain Management among older adults, funding is provided through the Department of Health, Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Registration is required. To register or for further information contact Michelle Bove from The Center for Prevention and Counseling at 973-383-4787 ext.231 or michelle@centerforprevention.org.
