Senior Assistance Springfield IL

We conducted 4 workshops (6 sessions for each workshop) and provided 17 participants with a Health and Wellness Kit valued at $207 each.  We had speakers for each of the 6 sessions who were experts in their field to educate participants on orientation, physical health, emotional health, nutrition and exercise, financial wellness and safety in the home.  One of our participants was ready to give up after losing his eyesight.  Today, with the support of ECVI and the King's Daughters Organization, he is adjusting to handling Daily Activities and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  He often tells us he does not know where he would be without ECVI.
