Lifeline to the Community

“I just called and said I need help. The tears were rolling down my cheeks as they answered my call.”

Two million elderly Americans were homebound in 2011 and only 12% received services at their home according to the Journal of the American Medicine Association.  This exhibit portrays how a wellness program enhances the elderly’s ability to remain healthy and active.

Lifeline personifies aging with dignity even as the fear of slipping through the cracks looms over our growing elderly population.
