During July, August, and September 2018 the weather has been amazing and with it the Vergennes SASH group has been especially active. We now have 94 SASH Participants.
Activities have included: Bone Builders, (which is up to 18 members meeting twice a week), Gardening Group, (which had 15 participants) that planted two gardens, two raised bed vegetable gardens, and created and maintained beautiful flower boxes and flower beds around Armory Lane). Among other activities our people have regular card and board games, a monthly Bible Study Group, Farm Share Vermont Program for Seniors that are income eligible for up to $50 dollars-worth of fresh organic veggies delivered right to their door, Our well attended All SASH Barbeque, A Shingles Presentation, a Hypertension Presentation, and our Annual Stay Steady Vermont Program where local Physical Therapists talk about Falls Risks with our people, then do individual Fall Risk Assessments.
Upcoming programming includes: A Presentation about Health Insurance for Seniors during Open Enrollment, a Flu Clinic this month, A Presentation about Seasonal Depression in November and a Indoor Yard Sale to ward off the winter Blahs.
As you can see, there are a lot of things to choose from with SASH as well as all participants receiving Individual SASH Assessments and Wellness Assessments where they then can work on their very own self-motivated Healthy Living Plan.
