Healthy Living Programs are a Big Hit in South County

Local municipalities, churches and satisfied program attendees have helped to make programs such as Matter of Balance (fall prevention), PATH (Personal Action Toward Health), Diabetes PATH, and Creating Confident Caregivers a household name in the South County Community Services (SCCS) service area. Senior participants in AAA programs report that their commitment to coming has been a “game changer” in their lives. While donations are very welcome, there is no set program fee. The METRO Community Service Van, operated by SCCS volunteers, is a resource for help with transportation. SCCS will partner with host sites to assist with program promotion and provide healthy refreshments. Anyone with a need and interest can attend.   Upcoming fall sessions are listed below.

PATH, Thursdays 9/17-10/22, Pavilion Township Hall, 7510 East Q, Scotts from 3:30 – 6 p.m.
