Healthy Aging

Through our annual grant of $223,000 to Elder Services of Merrimack Valley, we are bringing free, evidence-based programs to support older adults in the region  -- in both fall prevention and management and caregiver support. 

A Matter of Balance program is a community based, small group program that helps older adults reduce their fear of falling and increase activity levels. The Savvy Caregiver program is designed to train family and professional caregivers in the basic knowledge and skills needed to handle the challenges of caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.
