Aging Mastery Program

The Aging Mastery Program is a fun and engaging education and behavior change incentive program for aging well.

Developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA), the self-paced program educates and engages older adults as they take manageable steps toward aging well. NCOA created the program to develop new expectations, norms, and pathways for adults to make the most of their gift of longevity.

There are nine elective AMP classes that can be offered as a follow-on to the 10-class core program for AMP graduates. These classes address topics such as patient/physician communication, memory, home safety, malnutrition, and bucket lists. 

Research indicates the program helps participants to significantly increase their: 

  • Social connectedness
  • Physical activity levels
  • Healthy eating habits
  • Use of advanced planning
  • Participation in evidence-based programs 
  • Adoption of several other healthy behaviors
