Aging Mastery

The Cleveland Department of Aging and Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging will be running the Aging Mastery Program® at Cleveland Recreation & Senior Centers in 2016!

The 10-week Aging Mastery Program® (AMP), developed by the National Council on Aging, encourages mastery - developing behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security, and overall well-being.

By participating in this program, older adults will:

  • Make and maintain small but impactful changes in your health behaviors, financial well-being and enrichment in later life.
  • Get REAL incentives and rewards for taking small steps that can improve your well-being.
  • Meet new friends, provide support and encouragement to your peers, and become more involved in your community.

The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) is a comprehensive and fun approach to aging well that encourages people to take actions to enhance their health, financial well-being, social connectedness, and overall quality of life. Central to the AMP philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered and supported to cultivate health and longevity. Equally important, the program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors over time. Participants in AMP go through a 10- week core program with speakers and activities.

Life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past 50 years, yet people are generally unprepared for living longer lives. AMP offers an innovative approach to guide individuals through this phase of life. The program incorporates evidence-informed materials, expert speakers, group discussion, peer support, and small rewards to give participants the skills and tools they need to achieve measurable improvements in managing their health, remaining economically secure, and contributing actively in society. All program materials and resources align with the goal of helping people enjoy self-sufficient lives.

Aging Mastery Program is being held at the Lakeshore Rose Centers for Aging Well starting April 20th, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm for 10 consecutive weeks.  This program is FREE, but registration is necessary.  Please RSVP to Melissa Gleeson at 216-373-1680 or
