Our Health Initiative

OUR LIVE WELL INITIATIVE

WE ADDRESS THE HEALTH ISSUES OF THE AGING POPULATION IN OUR COMMUNITY AND THOSE WHO CARE FOR THEM. WE’RE DOING THIS BY:

  • Providing  screening to catch diabetes and other chronic diseases early
  • Teaching people with conditions such as diabetes how to care for themselves
  • Teaching caregivers of family members with Alzheimer’s how to take care of their loved ones and themselves
  • Providing counseling and respite care to caregivers
  • Providing transportation to medical appointments, individual and family counseling, hot meals to senior citizens and more

DID YOU KNOW?

Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death and increasing in prevalence. An estimated 20,000 number of people have Alzheimer’s in Tarrant County. An estimated 40% of caregivers will die before those they care for. While hundreds of millions of dollars are raised each year on research, little is done for caregivers.
