Well and Wise is an educational and inspirational six-month wellness program for anyone 60 years or older offered at no cost.

About this event

According to the National Council of Aging, millions of older adults struggle every day with health challenges, such as mental health issues or chronic disease. These conditions can negatively impact their quality of life. Good health helps ensure independence, security, productivity, and overall happiness, which is why the TGMC Healthy Lifestyles Center created the Well and Wise program.

Well and Wise, presented by The Foundation for TGMC and Terrebonne Council on Aging, is an educational and inspirational six-month wellness program designed for anyone 60 years or older offered at no cost. Attendees will receive the tools and resources they need to stay healthy and active which in turn can add years to their life.

The program meets on the last Wednesday of every month from 9 – 10:30 am in the TGMC Medical Atrium Auditorium and covers a variety of topics designed to entertain, educate, and empower. Topics include nutrition, prevention, and educational talks led by TGMC experts covering topics, such as heart disease, bone health, prescription education, healthy lifestyle tips, and more. Each class features complimentary breakfast, games and prizes, a weight loss challenge, senior fitness discounts, and a graduation ceremony at the end of the course.
