Encouraging Healthy Lifestyles

ARC’s two-fold approach to improving older adult health utilizes proven strategies that work hand-in-hand to address both individual and community health, contributing to Lifelong Communities for all. There are many factors that affect one's health, including healthy behaviors, environmental surroundings, and the socio-economic factors of one’s community. 

Individuals are encouraged to adopt healthy lifestyles, including those supported by social and personal enrichment programs designed to help older adults stay engaged and healthy.         
Communities that encourage and support healthy residents provide access to activity, healthy foods, and health care – important goals of ARC’s Lifelong Communities Initiative.

help connect those who are interested in collaborating to promote healthy lifestyles.
