BAND TOGETHER

Make a Difference by Being a Peer Volunteer Leader

Lebanon County Area Agency on Aging & its five Senior Community Centers are partnering with Penn State to offer a free strength training program to participants 50 years of age & over. The program is designed to build strength and function in a social and fun setting. Participants tell us that “it is fun being with others during the exercise time” and “carrying packages and groceries from the store is much easier now”.

To run the program for free, we need 3-5 volunteers, who will be trained to lead exercise sessions. The training takes about three hours and leaders are asked to commit about one hour per week to lead & supervise the group. Leaders do not have to be fit or strong and are encouraged to exercise during sessions.

If you, or someone you know, has an interest in being a peer leader, please call Dean Mease at 717-273-9262, or email @ dmease@lebcnty.org. If you want to learn more about the program go to http://www.btpennstate.org/

PA Caregiver Support Program (PCSP)

The first program of its kind to respond directly to the needs of adults caring for elders in the community.  Its purpose is to reinforce - not replace - the care being provided to the older adult at home.  Often times, the caregiver may receive financial reimbursement to help purchase services such as personal and respite care or adult day care and/or to purchase consumable supplies such as incontinence products or OTC (over the counter) products related to caregiving.  In addition, eligible caregivers may receive a one-time grant of up to $2,000 to help pay for home adaptations and devices that ease caregiving tasks and increase the financial independence of the older person.
