Health partnership receives $840,000 federal grant

Jul 11, 2018

Healthy Living for ME – a partnership including three Area Agencies on Aging: Spectrum Generations, SeniorsPlus and Aroostook Agency on Aging – has recently been awarded an $840,000, three-year grant by the Administration on Community Living.

Healthy Living for ME currently provides a single point of entry to a statewide network of workshops that empower adults to address and better manage their health issues. Workshops offered focus on improving balance and preventing falls and helping adults manage chronic conditions – including high blood pressure, chronic pain, heart disease, COPD, arthritis and diabetes.

Healthy Living for ME will use the new grant funds over the next three years to develop, expand and coordinate the centralized hub for evidence-based chronic disease self-management programs, including Living Well with Chronic Pain and Living Well with Diabetes. The funding of this project will also allow for the pursuit of Medicare reimbursement for both programs, ultimately resulting in complete sustainability without additional grant support.
