PrimeTime Health registered nurses work with community resources to provide creative disease prevention and health promotion programming for older adults with special focus areas selected by the PA Department of Aging including:
- Chronic conditions
- Mental health
- Injury prevention
- Medication management
PrimeTime Health was the first substantial effort by the national aging network to increase efforts at disease prevention by providing support and education to older people before they become ill. PrimeTime Health is a creative and cost-effective way to reduce the demand for medical treatment.
Federal funding through the Older Americans Act provides disease prevention and health promotion services at multipurpose senior community centers, congregate meal sites, home-delivered meals programs, senior high-rises, retirement communities, and other appropriate sites through the PrimeTime Health Program.
The program welcomes multiple community resources to support the educational efforts for older adults. Services and presentations are primarily available at senior community centers. To request a presentation, call Leslie Wright at 1-888-300-2704 ext 4411.
PrimeTime Health Coordinators may also arrange special area programming to assist individuals with positive management of the aging process.
