A new joint partnership between three Area Agencies on Aging finalized their union in Augusta.

Healthy Living for ME, a partnership between Spectrum Generations, SeniorsPlus, and Aroostook Agency on Aging, finalized their joint venture earlier this week in Augusta, with all three organizations signing papers.

Healthy Living for ME is a single-point of entry to a statewide network of workshops. These workshops empower adults to address and better manage their health issues such as high blood pressure, chronic pain, heart disease, COPD, arthritis, and diabetes.

Joy Barresi Saucier, Executive Director of Aroostook Agency on Aging describes Healthy Living for ME as an innovative network that will make the best wellness programs consistently available to all Mainers regardless of where they live. "People from all areas of the state, both rural and urban, want and need access to programs that help them live longer and remain independent."

A full listing of workshops being offered can be found online at www.healthylivingforme.org or call 1-800-620-6036 for more information.
