50 Plus Department Connects Older Adults to Healthy Aging Resources Online

Posted on April 29, 2020 at 11:26 AM by Becky Burnside

Encouraging older adults to engage in healthy habits to maintain positive quality of life has always been the driving force behind what we do.  Those healthy habits, such as staying connected, staying active, keeping the mind sharp, finding meaning and joy, and coping with change, are especially important now.  

Resources for those health habits can currently be found daily on our JCPRD 50 Plus Facebook page.  Enjoy performances by some of our favorite musicians that often perform at 50 Plus special events, gain tips and links to videos to workouts and healthy eating tips, find user-friendly technology tutorials, and more.  

The Explore 50 Plus monthly e-newsletter has been increased to a weekly version.  To sign up to receive the newsletter, visit  New and different virtual content aside from the Facebook page is shared here. A Community Connection section highlights local resources for older adults.  

Another way to connect to 50 Plus is through our new virtual programs.  Educational programs and presentations on mental health, home organization, and budgeting are some of the first that have been offered.  Bingo and coffee talks have been well received to keep avenues for socialization open.  Additional opportunities for education and engagement are currently being planned and can be found in both the e-newsletter and on the Facebook page.  

Until we can enjoy programs and events live and in person again, we hope you will take the opportunity to visit with us online.  To connect with a 50 Plus staff member by phone, please call (913) 826-2975.
