Elder Services receives grant

Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley has been named a recipient of an Administration for Community Living grant to provide education and tools to help older adults and adults with disabilities to better manage their chronic conditions. During the last several years, the agency has used such grants to conduct chronic disease self-management workshops.

With this new grant, they will be able to offer more free programs to the community. The grants build on the Recovery Act’s Chronic Disease Self-Management Program grants awarded in March 2010, which had an initial goal of reaching 50,000 older adults.
