Aging is a normal part of life, and people are living longer. Due to today’s medical advances, many adults are celebrating good health along with longevity. With a healthy lifestyle, exercise, activities, and strong social support, seniors can look forward to personal fulfillment and a long fruitful life. The City of Miami Gardens is committed to providing it’s senior population with information about their wellbeing and encouraging a focus on living a healthy lifestyle.
Starting in July of this year, the City partnered with Independent Living Community Services (ILCS) to provide Living Healthy Programs that not only offer educational information, but also demonstrate how evidence based programs can improve your overall health. The Evidence Based Programs that ILCS will be offering include Chronic Disease Self-Management (Living Healthy), Matter of Balance, Diabetes Self Ma n a g eme n t Training, and Fit and Strong. These workshops will take place at the newly constructed Miami Carol City Park Recreation Center, located at 3201 N.W. 185 Street.
The implementation of these programs and the strategic partnerships with key organizations, the City of Miami Gardens continues its effort to becoming a healthier community. For more information about registering for these programs, please contact Carl Williams at (305) 622- 8080.
