Medicare Annual Wellness Visit - Learning Modules

Wyoming Primary Care Association is pleased to be working with the Wyoming Center on Aging at the University of Wyoming on an effort to encourage more seniors to take advantage of their Annual Wellness Visit (AWV).   The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly appointment with your primary care provider (PCP) to create or update a personalized prevention plan. This plan may help prevent illness based on your current health and risk factors. Keep in mind that the AWV is not a head-to-toe physical. Also, this service is similar to but separate from the one-time Welcome to Medicare preventive visit.


Live Fit, Age Well (CG/HP)

Neil Short, Certified Personal Trainer | TC: 4369

  • Filmed at the 2018 Wyoming Conference on Aging | October 4th, 2018 | 1 hour

  • Learning Objectives: The objective of the Be Fit Age Well talk is to convince seniors that Strength +Mobility = Independence and Freedom and then to demonstrate that basic strength training is simple and requires little equipment.  Seniors who stay strong are able to age in place and, when health issues do arise, seniors who have done their work ( strength training as prehab) are able to heal and recover quickly.  I will speak of the importance of strength training by 1) explaining the devastating affects of sarcopenia 2) emphasize-ing that sarcopenia can be halted and reversed by strength training.  Attendees will leave the session with basic exercises that train our ability to push (including lifting overhead), to pull (including lifting items off of the floor), to hinge at the hips, to squat, and to carry weight. Push-Pull-Hip Hinge-Squat- Weighted Carry. In other words, training to function day-in, day-out.  Core work is included in all of that. As a basic core movement, seniors are encouraged to get up and down from the floor ten times daily using props as needed
