Engage Wellness Whole-Person Wellness & Medical Fitness Center at UNMC
by UNMC's Engage Wellness
Help us spread the word about UNMC's Engage Wellness! This medical fitness and whole-person wellness program is located in Omaha, Nebraska, on the University of Nebraska Medical Center campus, in the beautiful Home Instead Center for Successful Ageing building. Not only does Engage Wellness support seniors by preventing and treating chronic disease through physical activity and health education, it offers a solution for isolation which is one of the most serious consequences of senior health. Isolation makes seniors more vulnerable to elder abuse, dementia, long-term illness and depression. Your gift today will help us enhance participant retention/incentive programs, update/replace fitness equipment, facility improvements, and subsidize our evidence based programs that reduce incidence of falls, type 2 diabetes, and minimize suffering from osteoarthritis. Thank you!
Trained and certified volunteers and staff provide unbiased, one-on-one counseling sessions, presentations, and counseling over the phone to help seniors navigate the complex Medicare system, enabling them to make informed choices from the vast array of plan options available. Assistance is also available to help with fraud and abuse issues, billing problems, appeal rights, and enrollment in financial assistance programs for low-income beneficiaries.
Hospice of the Conejo is the only organization in south/eastern Ventura County to provide long-term, therapist-led grief support, guidance, and counseling to seniors completely FREE OF CHARGE. The loss of someone or something significant in ones' life can adversely impact their physical and emotional health. There is a fine line between grief and clinical depression and many people need professional help to get through the grieving process. Our clients receive professional support that allows them to heal from the adverse emotional and physical affects that are presented by grief.
Our Newly Bereaved Senior support group not only provides grief counseling but also includes an independent-living curriculum to help seniors learn to take care of household duties on their own, as many are used to their spouse handling items like paying bills, using their I-Phones, grocery shopping, 'surfing' the web.
Your support will help seniors recover from the debilitating affect caused by grief and move positively forward with their lives.
There are family members, neighbors and friends in our community with limited resources who need your help. As we age, things that we take for granted such as bathing, a hot meal and transportation, become a real challenge. Unfortunately, government funding is not sufficient to meet the needs that exist in our community. The Home Delivered Meals Program is one of the most basic ways that Blair Senior Services, Inc. can accomplish its mission of meeting the nutritional needs and improving and maintaining the health and well-being of older individuals in our community. Over the last year, the Agency has served some 10,000 consumers. Of those consumers, 7,000 are older individuals, the majority of which have incomes near or below the poverty level. We're asking for your help as our Agency strives to continue to our county's older residents.
