According to the National Institutes of Health, “Regular physical activity may help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. If you have one of these health problems, physical activity may improve your condition.” Staying active has been scientifically proven to improve your overall well being, increase your endorphins and self-esteem, and decrease anxiety and levels of social withdrawal.
Your support would help enable Meritan to continue to fulfill its mission to provide continued care and services to more than 1,700 Mid-Southerners through in-home health care and job training programs for seniors. Your donation allows Meritan to provide an array of programs for diverse groups including frail and homebound seniors, victims of elder abuse, foster care children and families, low-income seniors, and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
