Aging and Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin plans and coordinates various evidence-based classes for adults. We need volunteers that are willing to co-lead classes. Classes are offered based on volunteer availability. Training to lead classes is required.
Classes are typically held one time a week for 2.5 hours and run for 6-7 weeks. Classes are typically offered 1-2x a year.
Classes: Living Well with Chronic Conditions: Build confidence in adults managing a chronic health condition.
Healthy Living with Diabetes: Help adults with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes learn skills to better manage.
Stepping On: Evidence based class reduces the risk of falling for older adults.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers: Focus on the family/friend that is the caregiver. Whether a spouse is caring for a spouse or adult child is caring for a parent, burnout is real. This class helps to teach self care for the caregiver.
