TOAST TO YOUR HEALTH: STAYING HEALTHY TOGETHER PROGRAM CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF SUCCESS

Medal reading Staying Healthy Together celebrates 10 years of successLACERA would like to thank you for making the Staying Healthy Together program a success. For 10 years, the program has provided retired members with insight into how to stay healthy. We believe this is an integral part of serving our retired members because being in good health means being better able to enjoy retirement. We offer information via workshops, newsletter articles, and web content.

One fun way to stay healthy is to maintain a strong support group. Making friends helps boost mental fitness, among other benefits. Often retirees lose touch with people when they stop going to work, so it’s important to put forth the effort to socialize during retirement. Activities such as the Staying Healthy Together workshops give retirees a chance to connect with peers as well as learn something new each time they attend.

The topics of our workshops fall under the umbrella of keeping a healthy body, mind, and soul. In the past, healthy eating, physical fitness, and heart health have been discussed. Attendees have enjoyed these events at cultural landmarks around Los Angeles County, including Descanso Gardens, Torrance Cultural Art Center, and Diamond Bar Center. Not only are the workshops informative, people also report that they are good fun, so consider attending if you haven’t already. Watch for information about the next workshop’s date, time, and location in your mailbox, or find it on lacera.com, Retiree Healthcare, Retiree Wellness Program.

We thank you for your interest and wish you good health and every happiness that retirement affords.
