Healthy Aging/Health Promotion

Studies show that one of the keys to quality and longevity of life is healthy living. Encouraging overall wellness (for example: stress management, exercise, and proper nutrition) is the key to promoting good health. Preventing chronic health problems and managing the health problems that do occur is another powerful way to protect your health. While we all know we need to be healthy, it is not always easy to change our unhealthy habits. Finding and participating in health education programs can assist you in making the changes you want to make. While there are a wide variety of programs available to help older people maintain or improve their health, some of the programs we work with include: Living Well with Chronic Conditions and Stepping On.
