Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Adults
Men and women are living longer, enjoying energetic and active lifestyles well into their 80s and 90s. Study after study confirms eating well and being active can make a dramatic difference in the quality of life for older adults.

You are never too old to enjoy the benefits of improved nutrition and fitness. With nutrient-rich foods and activities with friends, you can feel an immediate difference in your energy levels and enjoyment of life. In fact, as we get older, our food and activity choices become even more important to our health.

Give to AgeWell Services
AgeWell Services prepares and delivers 1,600 meals each day to Seniors in Muskegon, Ottawa and Oceana Counties, but the need for our services continues to grow daily. A donation of any amount can go a long way towards helping deliver hope to seniors.
Volunteering is also a great way to give to AgeWell. It is only through the dedicated service of our volunteers that we are able to meet the needs of so many seniors in our area. An hour a week can make a huge difference!
