Odyssey: Aging, Nutrition and Fitness

Healthful eating and regular exercise increase energy and improve one's quality of life. They can also limit or even reverse the effects of aging. This course provides practical tips for caregivers and individuals concerned about their own health, setting forth minimum nutritional standards and demonstrating how conditions such as high blood pressure, arthritis, and osteoporosis can be ameliorated though diet and exercise. Participants assess the nutritional and fitness habits of both caregiver and client, then develop practical eating and exercise plans to match lifestyle and physical limitations. This course expands on information presented in Biological Aspects of Aging but has no prerequisites.
