The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) is an evidence-based program developed by National Council on Aging (NCOA). AMP encourages adults to take steps to support happiness and longevity. AMP includes 10 topics, that pair information on physical health, financial health, and life enrichment with action steps and activities. The classes will explore navigating longer lives, physical activity, sleep, healthy eating and hydration, financial fitness, medication management, advanced planning, healthy relationships, fall prevention, and community engagement. For each of these classes, we will provide basic educational materials developed from highly trusted sources, a checklist of potential next steps, and a system for tracking behaviors. Participants will earn points for positive actions and rewards.
To date, AMP has been hosted at more than 200 community sites across the country with 6,500 older adults participating.
The goal of this program is to empower older adults to make and maintain small but impactful changes.
