Healthy Aging

Promoting healthy lifestyles for older adults is vital in helping them to maintain healthy and independent lives. Providing information to you about disease prevention and health promotion resources and programs will help you become more knowledgeable about the health problems you may face and how you can prevent, delay, or manage them.
In addition, the Administration on Aging’s health, prevention, and wellness programs provide older adults with the tools to maintain their health, reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases, and manage their health to live as independently as possible. Visit the AoA website to learn more about these programs.
