East Side has been awarded a Live Well at Home grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services to expand our services for older adults. The result is a new program called Empowering Vital Aging (EVA).
EVA promotes access to community-based services for older adults to Live Well at Home. The goal of EVA is to leverage the broad array of programs for older adults at East Side and to serve as a connector to additional opportunities/services and supports that allow for improved health outcomes and vital aging.
As part of this goal, East Side has added several evidence-based health and wellness classes to our calendar of ongoing activities. Classes include Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls, and Living Well with Diabetes. All classes will be at East Side.
