Wellness Programs

The Wellness Program offers evidence-based classes throughout the county that address health issues that older adults and caregivers face on a daily basis.

Be Well Colorado, also known as Stanford’s Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CHSMP) is a six-week program that offers instruction on how to set and accomplish health goals, deal with pain and fatigue, the importance of nutrition and exercise, and skills for improving communication at the doctor’s office and at home. Participants receive a course book and relaxation CD. Classes offered in Spanish.

Matter of Balance is an evidence-based health education class designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable and to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise to increase strength and balance. Classes offered in Spanish.

The Area Agency on Aging also collaborates with other agencies to promote prevention and awareness on subjects such as falls and suicide.
