As medical care and cost of health insurance continues to rise each year, it has become more and more important to focus on taking care of ourselves.   Whether  it be living with a health problem like diabetes, arthritis, or anxiety, learning to eat healthy, working on our strength and balance to live at home, or taking care of someone we love, we all are thinking about health, wellness, and prevention, whether we know it or not. The good news is the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) can help out.

 

Evidence-Based Programs have the advantage!

 

For anyone out there looking to make healthier choices, manage a health problem, or exercise, there are a million and one people offering their advice and point of view.  The stories may be inspiring, and the before and after photos are shocking – but even if it is all it’s cracked up to be, how do you know it will work for you? How do you know if the person it did help is anything like you?

 

That’s where the Evidence-Based programs have an advantage. Evidence-based programs are based on research. When you take one, you can be confident you’re participating in a program that works.  Evidence-based programming translates tested program models or interventions into practical, effective community programs that can provide proven health benefits to participants. In short, these programs work for older adults, they have been proven to do so time and time again.  The results are typical.
