Wellness

ElderServe is committed to helping older adults remain as active and healthy as possible during the aging process. Along with health screenings and education at our Senior Center, we offer two other wellness programs:

Active Choices

Active Choices supports adults 60 and older who are homebound or can’t get out much. At no cost, we help these seniors develop a custom plan and goals for adding physical activity daily. Over six months, we follow up with phone calls to monitor and encourage progress.  The program is free. Please contact Sarah Irvin at 502.736.3847 or by e-mail if you are interested in participating.

Healthy Habits for Adults

Volunteers teach wellness workshops for adults in the same age at various locations in Louisville.

Each one-hour class includes a healthy snack, recipe ideas, nutrition lesson, and low-impact exercises.  Classes include: Eating Healthy on a Budget; Fluids, Staying Hydrated; Shake the Salt Habit, Limiting Salt in your Diet; and Eating the Rainbow, Love your Colorful Fruits and Veggies.

These workshops are a win-win for both sides. Not only do attendees learn more about eating better, but volunteers feel good about community service.

To join a class, volunteer for the program, or host a class, contact Sarah Irvin at 502.736.3847 or by e-mail.

This program, funded by a grant from Anthem Foundation, is offered through a partnership between ElderServe and the OASIS Institute, a national education organization dedicated to enriching the lives of adults age 50+ through lifelong learning and service.
