Web site promotes healthier living for seniors

February 16, 2006

Albany-- A new website will help Georgia seniors take charge of their health and their lifestyles.

The state Division of Aging Services and the University of Georgia launched the "Live Healthy Georgia" website. It provides seniors, families and caregivers with information to help them live well and age well.

The Sowega Council on Aging says the website will help the many senior citizens who already are proactive about their health.

"We have groups of people that have the monitors so they can tell how many steps they walk everyday and we're seeing some good results from these programs," says Kay Hind of the Sowega Council on Aging.

The council plans to open a multi-purpose center with several computers for seniors to use. The website is www.livewellagewell.info
