Evidence-Based Health Programs help older adults and adults with disabilities improve their health and quality of life. These programs are researched and proven to create long-lasting, healthy behavior changes. They also provide a social outlet for participants to connect with their peers and make friends.
The Aging & Disability Resource Center of Portage County offers a variety of evidence-based exercise classes and workshops. Some of our programs include:
StrongBodies™ - This class helps people build strength and improve their balance.
Arthritis Foundation Exercise - This class helps people with arthritis stay active and manage their pain.
Fun & Fit - This class helps people increase their range of motion while decreasing pain and stiffness.
Healthy Living with Diabetes - This workshop helps people learn how to manage diabetes for themselves or a loved one they care for.
Stepping On for Falls Prevention - This workshop helps older adults reduce their risk of falls.
Mind over Matter: Healthy Bowels & Healthy Bladders - This workshop helps women over 50 manage incontinence.
New programs are always being evaluated and added to meet community health needs.
