A focus on healthy aging can enhance activity participation, and reduce the impact of chronic diseases and decline in function. Interpretive phenomenological analysis was used to explore the perspectives of nine participants of a university run Aging Well Program (AWP) 12 months following its completion. Analysis of the semi-structured interviews conducted, identified three key themes: 1) Using strategies to keep your mind alert; 2) I now know what to do to maintain my physical wellbeing; and 3) Connections with others. The findings indicated that the AWP had long-term positive cognitive, physical and social impacts, from the perspectives of the participants.
