Adventures in Learning
Adventures in Learning (AIL) is a lifelong learning program focused on helping seniors continue to learn, discover, and grow in an atmosphere of friendship. Our sessions are led by volunteer class instructors who bring their special interest and backgrounds to enrich lives and keep minds strong and vibrant.
The National Council on Aging reports that seniors who regularly engage in lifelong learning score significantly higher on assessments of physical, mental and social well-being compared to those not engaged in continued education programs.

Falls are preventable - let us teach you how!! Lessons include home modifications, fear of falling, assessing and adapting risk of falls when up and about, a session on how to get up from a fall, and each session will include an actual exercise session specific to falls prevention needs.
