The Wellness Programs at the Fair Oaks Adult Activity Center provide opportunities for a diverse group of older adults age 65+ to thrive and maintain their health and well-being. Our theory of change is that “Older adults participating in the wellness programs maintain or improve their health and quality of life in terms of their emotional well-being, nutrition, physical health, social resources and connectedness, and exercise and fitness.”
An evaluation last October of the Wellness Programs shows reduced depression, improved physical activity, and increased social connections among participants.
Fair Oaks has helped me with my health. I watch what I eat and I’ve learned how to eat well. It’s made me stronger. With them, I’ve lost 106 pounds! I’m proud of myself for it!
