AGING MASTERY PROGRAM
The Aging Mastery Program core curriculum combines evidence-informed knowledge sharing with goal-setting and feedback routines, daily practices, peer support, and small rewards. Classes are led by expert speakers who help participants gain the skills and tools they need to manage their health, remain economically secure, and contribute actively in society. The goal of the 10 core classes is to provide participants with an overview of the challenges encountered while navigating life in old age and offer support to master new skills.

This is a two-week memory training program developed by Dr. Gary Small, Director of UCLA's Longevity Center. This program has proven to improve mental functioning. This program will not increase your IQ (that is not possible), but it will help define the differences between normal aging memory losses and abnormal functioning. Also it teaches techniques that can be used to enhance your memory skills, as well as creating lifestyle changes, which can enhance both your Brain Health and Physical Health. As with so many of other aging issues, we can connect the importance of healthy eating habits, physical and mental exercise, nutrition and social interaction to enhancing one's brain functioning and health.
You will be taught, with practice, ways of memorizing people's names, lists, relevant facts, phone numbers, directions, etc. You will learn about the significance of attention and the role it plays in the memory process. This is an active participation program, as is the Aging Mastery Program. To reap the benefits one will have to do the work and practice throughout the day. The program will consist of two three hour programs, which include learning and engaging in the new memory techniques that you learn.
