Staying Active & Healthy


Volunteer Engagement

Engagement in the community is an important part of healthy aging. Volunteers not only have the opportunity to make a difference, but research has found that volunteer in provides mental and physical health benefits. 

If you are aged 55 or older (some programs 50+), here are some ways you can give back to your community by sharing your time, skills, and experiences.

  • Some programs provide a small stipend.
  • Some opportunities only require an hour a month, others a weekly schedule.  
  • There are a wide array of opportunities available. We'll find the one that is right for you!

Fall Prevention

Many people think, “It won’t happen to me.” But the truth is that 1 in 4 older adults fall every year in the U.S. - explore our resources to find out how to reduce your risk.


As we age, our metabolism will slow down, which means we need fewer calories than earlier in life. At the same time, however, nutrient needs will stay the same or even increase.   Eating healthy is even more important than ever before!  Check out the healthy eating tips and community resources on the nutrition page.
