TAVARES — The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension in Lake County is hosting a monthly educational series through March 2014 to aid older residents on a variety of topics related to health, finances and safety. The series entitled “Aging Well in Lake County,” will continue with its second class in the series, “Healthy Meals for 1 or 2.” The class will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the Lake County Extension Office, 1951 Woodlea Road, Tavares.
“Aging well requires resiliency, as well as staying motivated to take care of yourself physically and mentally,” said Julie England, Family and Consumer Sciences Agent at the UF/IFAS Extension in Lake County. “As we age, people who used to cook for large families find it difficult to transition to only feeding one or two people. Our second program in the series will cover ways to downsize your cooking, without sacrificing nutrition and flavor.”
Each month, classes will be held that will go into more detail on specific topics related to aging well. Upcoming programs include aging in place, organizing your home and papers and end of life planning.
The cost of the class is $5 and registration is required by Tuesday, Nov. 19. Registration can be completed online at https://agingwellnovember.eventbrite.com.
