RETIRED SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
PUTNAM COUNTY, NY
Koehler Center

HEALTHY FUTURES

Every day, millions of Americans face health problems that reduce their quality of life. We are helping to address some of these issues in the following ways:
     - The Demand Response Medical Transportation Program uses volunteers to drive seniors and veterans to medical appointments. Research has told us that transportation is the most important issue facing seniors in Putnam County.
     - The Computer Learning Center for Seniors offers courses in basic computer skills to anyone over 55. Here, seniors can learn the technology necessary to keep in touch with family, utilize the internet to access Medicare, Social Security and Supplemental Health Plan information, and find information on healthy aging and other health-related issues. Volunteers are needed to lead and coach classes in our Learning Centers located at the William Koehler Senior Center in Mahopac and the Putnam Valley Senior Center.
     - Access to recreation and wellness programs are key to healthy living. Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being. Activity Leaders are needed at each of the 4 Nutrition Centers to lead Music Appreciation, Art, Brain Fitness, Exercise, and other classes.
