Partnership for Healthy Aging was created by MaineHealth to improve services for older adults and to support active participation in healthcare self-management. The program links clinicians, evidence-based programs and community services.
PFHA engages local and statewide organizations in developing, translating and disseminating programs that improve the health status of older adults and their caregivers. This collaborative approach ensures that programs address community needs and are accepted by older adults and their caregivers.
PFHA has successfully developed and distributed the Matter of Balance Volunteer Lay Leader Model throughout Maine and 41 other states. The program collaborates with Maine's Area Agencies on Aging and other community partners to offer the program to older adults in our communities.
