Aging With Excellence

 

Program Series

Thursday, September 12 - 10 to 11 AM You Are What You Eat!

 

Most of us have heard that phrase from time-to-time.  The wisdom of these five words has great bearing today, given we continue to become more acutely aware that to be fit and healthy we must eat good food:  food that is good for us!  Today we know that our daily life-style choices have a tremendous impact on our overall health and longevity, i.e. sleep, exercise, social connections, and yes, what we eat.  Please join us as Sandra Silva, J.D., Store Manager of GreenAcres Market shares her knowledge and insight with us.  Sandra has a deep commitment to healthy eating and healing.

 

Please call 816-452-4536 to register by Tuesday, September 10.

The Gifts of Imperfection:

Your Guide to a Wholehearted Life: Guideposts 1-3

 

Wednesday, September 25

Wednesday, October 2

Wednesday, October 9

10:00 to 11:30 am at

 

Author and researcher Brene Brown tells us that “wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.  It means cultivating the courage, compassion and connection to wake up in the morning and think, ‘No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough…I am brave and worthy of love and belonging’.”  In this interactive group, we explore Brene’s first three guideposts in living a wholehearted life:  Letting go of what people think, letting go of perfectionism, and letting go of numbing and powerlessness.  Reading “The Gifts of Imperfection” prior to meeting is recommended, but not required.  We plan to have books available for purchase.

 

Please register by September 18.

Become a Coach

for Matter of Balance!

Matter of Balance Coach Training

Tuesday, October 1st & Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

 

Time: 8:00 am to 12:00 pm                                                                             Location: Northland Shepherd’s Center                                                        5601 NE Antioch Rd,  Suite 12, KCMO 64119

 

Registration Required by calling 816.452.4536

 

Chances are you know someone who has fallen or who is afraid of falling. A Matter of Balance is a proven program designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity.  Northland Shepherd’s Center is looking for volunteers to help provide this program.

 

We encourage you to become a facilitator who positively impacts the well-being and quality of life for seniors struggling with balance issues and fear of falling. You can be a game changer in the life of someone who has wrongly believed that her best years are all behind her. Maybe somebody close to you!

 

You will be trained on how to facilitate (with another coach) an 8-session course of 2 hours each that will instruct seniors on:

 

·        Conducting a safety assessment of their home.

·        Using Assertiveness to stay safe.

·        Exercise that improves balance.

·        Much more.
