Prevention Activities

The ADRC would like to educate the community about prevention and wellness as we age. Studies show that as we age we are at greater risk for declining physical and mental health however there are activities that can delay this or improve our physical and mental well being. Also be sure to check out our calendar for schedule activities in the community.

Presentation topics include:

  • What is the ADRC?
  • Falls Prevention
