Aging Mastery Program TM (AMP)
CAREgivers by Active Generations Aging Mastery Program TM (AMP) is designed for people age 50 to 100. The 10-week program provides a comprehensive approach to aging well – focusing on key aspects of health, finance, relationships, personal growth, and community involvement. AMPTM participants have shown a significant increase in their physical activity levels, healthy eating habits, use of advanced planning, social connectedness, and participation in self-management programs.
The AMPTM program is available in two versions. First as an in-person version held at community sites where older adults already gather (such as senior centers). Secondly in an online version through a self-guided environment called Digital AMPTM.
This evidence-based program allows you or your loved one to get the most out of every day.
