Healthy Aging & Wellness Education

Classes and trainings for adults age 60+ to manage chronic conditions, improve quality of life and reduce healthcare costs.

If you live with a chronic condition, you know that your illness can make life, and your health, hard to manage. Our chronic disease, self-management wellness classes are designed for adults age 60 and older in the Twin Cities who want to improve their quality of life, become more confident in managing their health and reduce healthcare costs. Family and friend caregivers are welcome to participate.

Wilder leads Healthy Aging & Wellness Education for older adults and also trains other organizations to host them. For more information, contact Melissa Gibbs at 651-280-2515 or melissa.gibbs@wilder.org.
