Wellness Classes

Aging services such as adult day offered at the Wilder Community Center for Aging can help adults manage chronic conditions to improve their quality of life.
Helping adults manage chronic conditions to improve quality of life

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 these Wellness Classes 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.

We partner and work with other organizations in the community to offer a variety of Wellness Classes at locations across the Twin Cities metro area.
