ENRICH-0022 – Focus Forward: Healthy Aging (ENRICH-0022_FFHA)

Healthy Aging: Physical, Mental and Social Wellbeing in the Third Age

A Focus Forward: Reinventing Career and Retirement short course

This short course is available to all students who have taken Planning for Change in the Third Age. In that workshop students talked about the 10 Important Considerations in the Third Age. One of those considerations was Healthy Aging, which combines physical, mental and social health. In this discussion-based two-session course, take a deeper dive into these three aspects of healthy aging. Look at physical, mental and social health and how they combine to create a foundation for healthy aging in the third age. While many people, especially “third-agers,” are aware of the importance of physical fitness, we may be less aware of the importance of mental health and the health of our brains as we age. Explore what neuroscience can tell us about our aging brains and learn ways to build our social muscle as the third aspect of healthy aging. Prerequisite: Planning for Change in the Third Age workshop.
