Let Us Help You
Age Well

Research tells us that being active and staying socially connected are crucial to maintaining our health and quality of life. With our wide variety of Wellness Services, we can help you age with confidence and dignity. 

Age Well offers an array of wellness programs for older adults throughout Northwestern Vermont. 

A Matter of Balance

Designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults, the Matter of Balance in-person class is based upon research conducted by the Roybal Center for Enhancement of Late-Life Function at Boston University.

Consisting of 8 two-hour sessions, which can be held twice a week for 4 weeks or once a week for 8 weeks, the early sessions focus on changing attitudes before attempting changes in actual behavior. The exercise component, which begins in the third session, takes about 30 minutes of the session to complete. Each two-hour session includes a 10 minute break for the opportunity to socialize, move around and have a light refreshment if desired.

Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less

A 15-week weight management program led by a Registered Dietitian that works because it is not a diet—it’s a lifestyle!  This online program is based on healthy eating and physical activity to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. 

Tai Chi Classes

Endorsed by The Arthritis Foundation and the Center for Disease Control and Injury Prevention (CDC), Tai Chi is an evidence-based health program that reduces stiffness and pain, keeping joints mobile. Age Well provides classes for individuals who are 60+ years of age. Taught by certified volunteer trainers, there is no charge for these classes, but donations are gratefully accepted.

Counseling & Behavioral Health Support

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, call Howard Center’s First Call: 802-488-7777 or 911.

Age Well staff and volunteers support many clients with their mental health needs including coordinating access to mental health services, social programs, medication assessment (HomeMeds), and more.
