The ADRC, along with our community partners, offers a variety of evidence-based health promotion programs to older adults in Waukesha County. The primary goals of these programs are to empower adult persons to adopt healthy behaviors, improve their health status, and reduce complications of illness or injury. Evidence-based prevention programs are different from other health education programs because they are based on scientific research and are proven to have positive outcomes for safe and healthy aging. All of our workshops are led by trained leaders to ensure program guidelines and lesson plans are followed.
A collaboration between the ADRC and Public Health divisions, A Cup of Health is a series of health-related presentations held monthly at four locations throughout Waukesha County.

Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels, Healthy Bladder (MOM) is a researched and proven program designed to give women the tools they need to take control of bladder and bowel leakage. Join a MOM workshop and learn strategies for preventing or lessening symptoms including information sharing, group activities, simple exercises, and dietary changes. With practice, these new skills are proven to help you avoid or reduce leakage so you can keep doing the things that matter most to you.
Stepping On: This seven-week program is perfect for adults who have fallen in the past year or for those who may have a fear of falling. This highly interactive workshop teaches simple exercises to improve strength and balance. Participants are empowered to take an active role in fall prevention. Local guest experts help the group adapt fall prevention practices for individual needs and levels. Weekly topics explore how vision, medications, sleep, home hazards, and footwear can increase the risk falling. Stepping On is for people who are age 60 or older, do not have dementia, and who live independently.
Healthy Living with Diabetes: This workshop is ideal for any adult who has, or lives with someone who has, pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Participants gain knowledge and learn new skills to increase their confidence in managing diabetes. Monitoring, nutrition, exercise, and symptom management are some of the topics covered during these six weekly sessions. The program does not replace existing treatments but serves to complement a participant’s current medical treatment plan.
Living Well with Chronic Conditions: For adults who are not suffering from dementia but have one or more chronic (ongoing) health condition. Heart and lung problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic pain, arthritis, and asthma, as well as Crohn’s disease and depression are a few examples of a chronic ongoing condition. During this highly participative six-week workshop you will learn practical ways to deal with complications that arise with ongoing health conditions. With mutual support, participants learn to better manage their conditions and maintain healthy active lives. Those who live with someone who has an ongoing health problem will also benefit from this workshop.
