The Thriving in Place program is launching on January 1, 2015. This program is designed to help our older adult residents and those living with the challenges of chronic illness and disabilities to live happily and safely in their own homes for as long as possible. Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition has partnered with 16 local and regional healthcare and service agencies, combined with a core volunteer support team that will provide resources, support, education, services and more to make this goal possible.
From companionship to light housekeeping or yard work… from home safety re-modifications to transportation… from help navigating the complexities of the healthcare system to access to financial, legal and insurance advice, we are working with our partners to create healthier, happier, and safer communities for the residents of Bucksport, Orland, Verona Island, and Prospect.
We, here at Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition, invite you to join this program as either a participant, a volunteer, or both! We believe that Thriving in Place can provide helpful resources for you and those you care about! Download Press Release, click here. You can also download the Flyer, click here.
