Volunteer Opportunities with Evidence-Based Health Programs
Evidence-Based Health Programs (EBHP) are aimed at keeping older adults healthy and independent as long as possible. These programs that the Area Agency on Aging sponsors in our region are taught by volunteers. We are always in need of volunteers who are willing, and enjoy giving others skills to live a higher quality of life. Volunteers need good communication and interpersonal skills, enthusiasm, dependability, and a willingness to lead small groups of older adults. If you think this "job" is for you, look at the different programs and see what interests you most.

Living Well with Chronic Conditions

A Matter of Balance
A Matter of Balance is a program geared toward keeping our older adults "up right" by looking at their habits and attitudes towards falls, physical activity, and their environment. Participants learn exercises to increase strength and flexibility, and skills to cope with the fear of falling. For more information, click here.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers
Powerful Tools for Caregivers goal is to help caregivers thrive; instead of survive, as they give care to a loved one. This self-care education program improves self-care behaviors, management of emotions, and increased confidence in coping with caregiving demands. For more information, click here.
