September is Healthy Aging Month


Every September young and old alike celebrate Healthy Aging Month – a national observance to call attention to the positive aspects of growing older.  This September, why not resolve to improve your health, pursue something new, or revive a favorite hobby or activity?

The agencies of the Home Health Foundation – Home Health VNA, Merrimack Valley Hospice, and HomeCare, Inc. – celebrate healthy aging every day! As the leader in home health and hospice care in this region, we are committed to the health of the community and focused on teaching people the importance of staying healthy and active at any age. 

Our prevention and wellness clinics, educational programs, support groups and chronic disease self management classes held at many Council’s on Aging help people remain focused on taking charge of their health to achieve a better quality of life.  Our exercise programs are a great way socialize while building strength and endurance.  And, our nutritional programs focus on the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables and portion control to maintain a healthy weight and feel great. 

Whether you need a complete health makeover, or just some minor changes to ensure a healthy and happy lifestyle as you age, it’s never too late to start.  If you would like more information about prevention and wellness clinics in your area, contact your local Council on Aging or call 978-552-4186.
