Live Well. Age Well.

Aging well starts with eating right, staying active, and thinking positive. Learn how to take good care of your body and your mind with timely tips from our Thrive at Home Specialists.

Dear Friend,

Our mission to support and educate older adults and their families is especially important in these most challenging times.  A public health crisis like the coronavirus can cause uncertainty and stress for people of all ages, and the isolation caused by social distancing can feel lonely.  These feelings may be new for some. But for many of the older adults served by AgingNext, 78% of whom are considered low-income and 63% of whom are homebound, stress and loneliness are experienced regularly. This crisis only exacerbates those feelings.

AgingNext staff and volunteers are working hard on the front lines to support our clients.  Our team has delivered over 150 meals in the last week alone. We are doing all that we can to ensure our 16-city area’s older adults stay safe, feel secure, and have all they need to remain healthy at home until the day when our normal programs and services are back up and running in their full capacity.

While our office is closed to walk-in traffic, our resource specialists continue to:

  • deliver groceries to older adults in need
  • make friendly phone calls to ensure health and safety
  • provide rides to medical appointments
  • pick-up prescriptions at the pharmacy

We understand this new normal has affected everyone. You may be struggling as well.  Yet given the high risk the coronavirus poses to adults aged 65+, many of the older adults that we serve are in vital need of support and are looking to us as providers of that support.  Any donation during this time will meaningfully impact so many people in our local communities.

Can you commit to a monthly gift and become a Give Well partner? Or will you consider a one-time donation of $20, $50 or even $100? If you are able, please click the button below to make a donation.

Pam and Charlotte: “AgingNext was our long-awaited gift”

The seventeen months that the Center was closed caused a grave hardship on many families. Caregivers were relied upon to provide daily activities, essential care, and medical assistance for their loved ones 24/7. The unfortunate effect on families was evident by the number of phone calls AgingNext received during this time.

Demystifying the Village

Anyone remember the old adage, “A friend in need, is a friend indeed?” The concept of surrounding ourselves with community is not new. Did you grow up not only knowing your neighbors socially, but also knowing they were there to help if you needed something? Do you remember going next door to borrow a cup of sugar? It seemed that our neighborhoods were full of helpers and many still are!

How much water should you drink each day?

Gale began attending the AgingNext Caregiver Support Group meetings over 17 years ago when her father was diagnosed with Leukemia. Shortly after his passing, her mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia and Gale became her caregiver. To better prepare for what lay ahead, Gale became a Certified Gerontologist.
