Staying Healthy and Active

The Alliance for Aging wants to help you address your health effectively by providing evidence-based programs that enhance the quality of life.

These programs are delivered at community centers, senior housing facilities, and faith-based organizations at no charge to seniors 60 years and older.

Many of our programs are also available remotely, which means you can take advantage of these programs right from the comfort of your own home.

Our evidence-based programs have been proven to empower older adults to take control of their health. Workshops are offered in English, Spanish, and Creole throughout the year. To learn more about participating in these programs, or to partner with us to bring these programs to your facility, call the Alliance for Aging at 305-670-6500 x 11275 | programs@allianceforaging.org or click on the program buttons below for more information.

Would You Like To Be A Group Leader?

Lay leaders must have good communication and interpersonal skills, enthusiasm, dependability and a willingness to lead small groups of older adults.
