*Wellness 50+
<strong>This portion of the wiki is intended for collaboration among members of the Vital Aging Network’s Wellness 50+ program.</strong>
<h4>Program Description</h4>
The Vital Aging Network’s Wellness 50+ program plans to embed sustainable wellness initiatives in four communities over three years. The initiatives will be led by older adults trained through the Vital Aging Network’s Evolve: Re-igniting Self &amp; Community.

The outcome of Wellness 50+ will be measurable <b>changes in behaviors</b> that contribute to wellness and/or <b>positive health outcomes </b>in older adults in one or more of the following categories:
<ul>
<li>Healthy Eating</li>
<li>Physical and Social Activity</li>
<li>Healthy Thinking, Feeling, and Being</li>
<li>Prevention, Healing, Coping with Chronic Disease</li>
</ul>
At the conclusion of the pilot program, the Vital Aging Network will develop a replicable model for implementing the Wellness 50+ initiative in communities across the Minnesota and the nation.

Long-term impact of Wellness 50+ is expected to be:
<ul>
<li>Positive behavior changes and improved health indicators among older adults living in the community.</li>
<li>Ongoing capacity in the community to plan and implement wellness-related projects.</li>
<li>Strong community support for behaviors that contribute to wellness.</li>
<li>Better quality of life for older adults through increased wellness.</li>
<li>Better community decisions on wellness-related issues for people 50+ because more people will be involved in defining the problem and implementing solutions.</li>
<li>Lower healthcare expenditures and lower social service costs due to wide spread behaviors that decrease need for services.</li>
</ul>
