Take charge of your health!


Clay County Senior Services holds the license to offer the Aging Mastery Program in Clay County. We offered to pilot the program in the Kansas City metro area in 2017 after meeting with Jim Firman, CEO for the National Council on Aging. Clay County Senior Services continues to administer and support the program here in Clay County. 

If your organization is interested in offering or sponsoring an AMP class, please contact Tina Uridge: tina@claycoseniors.org.

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) encourages mastery — developing behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security and overall well-being. Classes are offered year-round in various locations.

The 12-week Aging Mastery Program for Caregivers will be offered virtually beginning on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
The topics covered are designed to promote healthy aging as you take care of yourself and your loved one.

Living Well with Chronic Conditions

Attend an "intro to online programs" session, followed by a FREE 6-week online workshop.
Next session begins Wednesday, August 12 through September 23, 2020, 9:00 - 11:30 am.
