Our Health & Wellness/Fitness Educators at CCE Clinton are working hard to adapt to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. In an effort to keep engagement and continue programming via the web, they will be sharing health and wellness information as well as creating video content. This page will serve as a blog of sorts, updating frequently and listing information by most recent at the top with older posts further down the page.

Note: CCE Clinton is now offering online fitness programs. These live classes will be streamed using Zoom. Please notice the schedule below. For information on how to join any of these classes contact Mary P. Breyette at mba32@cornell.edu

September: Fall Prevention Month

Falls are the leading cause of injury for those over 65 and the goal of Fall Prevention Month is to get the word out about the prevalence of falling, while acknowledging the importance of prevention. Most falls can be prevented! In an effort to reduce risk, the National Safety Council and Center of Disease Control and Prevention, among others, have provided informational flyers with tips on fall-proofing your home, exercises to help with balance, proper equipment/clothes and more.

To read the complete flyers, please visit the links below.

ICYMI: Winter Assistance Tip Sheet for AAAs 

In case you missed it (ICYMI), earlier this month NYSOFA  shared a tip sheet on important benefits available to low-income New Yorkers for home heating and weatherization programs this winter.

The document is intended for your case managers and other staff to help them quickly identify areas of assistance for clients. It summarizes information that was shared during a  series of winter assistance workshops hosted by state agencies that oversee housing, energy, utilities, and more.

Some application deadlines for the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) and other initiatives are coming up soon, while other programs are in effect throughout the calendar year. Please be sure to share this resource with your team as soon as possible.
