2018 Health for Me Calendar

“I’m watching my fat intake and my carbs. I’m getting better sleep. I’m changing the way I observe my diabetes. All in all, I’ve changed for the better concerning my diabetes.” Margaret, age 86

“I will exercise more, organize my apartment, eat better and take my life back.”
Marilyn, age 62

“Your balance class was very helpful and encouraged me on the importance of consistent exercising to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keep up the good work!”
David, age 78

Care Coordination

The Care Coordination Program is a client-centered, skills-based program that connects Sixty and Better Activity Center participants to local, state, and federal supports they need to age in place with independence and dignity. One client, a 93-year-old WWII veteran and Purple Heart recipient, was paying close to $500 per month for just one of his many medications, after working with him. He now pays $0 for all of his life-saving medications.
