PEERs Graduate at the Julia Pound Care Center (St. Andrew’s Village), Nov. 13 (11 am) The Indiana County Area Agency on Aging conducted PEER training sessions at the Julia Pound Care Center located in Indiana, PA. The PEER program encourages a partnership between residents and facility staff to work together to solve concerns before they become more intense problems. The PEER program trains resident advocates to work with facilities, staff, and residents to enhance quality of care and quality of life for their “peers.” The program was initiated by the Pennsylvania State Long-Term Care Ombudsman’s Office in an effort to assist long-term care residents in volunteering their time and expertise to self-advocate issues that will resonate for their peers. PEER program participants attend five two-hour training sessions which include topics such as “The Focus in on YOU,” “Building Self-Resolution Skills,” and “PEER the Sky’s the Limit.” There is also a two-hour session for facility staff to orient them to the PEER concept. Following the completion of the training sessions, the PEER participants have a graduation ceremony to celebrate the accomplishment of completing the program. The PEERs are awarded with a certificate, a starfish pin, a door sign, and a badge. On Nov. 13, 2015 there were 9 graduates from the PEER Program at St. Andrew’s Village. The graduation ceremony took place at St. Andrew’s Village Living and Learning Center on Nov. 13, 2015. For more information, please contact Debra Gressley with the Indiana County Area Agency on Aging at 724-349-4500.

The Graduates: Left to right, back row, Carol Findley (volunteer ombudsman), Debra Gressley (long-term care ombudsman) Charles "Coach" Klausing, David Frick, Sally Abrams, Jane Reese, Lois Cox, Wendy Vennard (Administrator of Village House); front row, Frank Yoders, Dorothy Mosbaugher, Clarence "Sparky" Spark and Pauline Strench.




Are you 60 years of age or older, have arthritis, or need to get more exercise but don’t know where to start?  


Let’s not forget the Aquatic Aerobics Classes.  How about joining the Water Aerobics Classes Aging Services, Inc. has? You don’t have to know how to swim because the hour long class consists of aerobics exercises done in the water.   Classes are conducted by a trained instructor.


Water aerobics is an excellent form of exercise for those who suffer from joint pain.  As we age, our need for physical activity is important.  It increases our range of motion, strengthens our cardiovascular system, aids in weight control, and boosts our immune system.


Cost per class is only $4.00.   For more details, or to sign up today, call Aging Services, Inc. at (724) 349-4500 or 1-800-442-8016.
