Healthy Living for ME receives $840,000 in federal funding
3-year grant award supports the expansion and sustainability of statewide network of workshops addressing chronic health issues  

Statewide (Maine) – Healthy Living for ME – a partnership between three Area Agencies on Aging: Spectrum Generations, Seniors Plus, and Aroostook Agency on Aging – has recently been awarded an $840,000, 3-year grant from the Administration on Community Living (ACL).

Healthy Living for ME currently provides a single-point of entry to a statewide network of workshops that empower adults to address and better manage their health issues. Workshops offered focus on improving balance and preventing falls and helping adults manage chronic conditions – including high blood pressure, chronic pain, heart disease, COPD, arthritis, and diabetes.

Healthy Living for ME will utilize these new grant funds over the next three years in developing, expanding, and coordinating the centralized hub for evidence-based chronic disease self-management programs including Living Well with Chronic Pain and Living Well with Diabetes. The funding of this project will also allow for the pursuit of Medicare reimbursement, for both programs, ultimately resulting in complete sustainability without additional grant support.

Lead organization Spectrum Generations’ President & CEO, Gerard Queally said, “We know that Healthy Living for ME works for Mainers; we’ve seen increased health outcomes in the two years since our last ACL grant. Having a statewide network of providers, community partners, and health systems only furthers that benefit and now presents a fortuitous opportunity for healthcare providers in Maine to work closely with community-based organizations to execute the Triple Aim. Healthy Living for ME workshops improve a person’s experience of care, the overall health of population, and reducing the per capita cost of health care, and provides lasting results.”
