A local public health initiative, SAGE (Successful Aging in Greendale for Everyone) has been launched to explore and support innovative ideas to promote healthy and productive lives for the residents of Greendale, especially older adults.  Fostering a strong sense of community and assurance of inclusiveness are central to the group’s purpose. 

Currently the group is identifying and compiling a list of existing local resources for older adults. 
The link for this list is available below or you may obtain a copy at the Greendale Community Learning Center (Library, Health Department, Park and Recreation Department).  You may also call the Greendale Health Department at 414-423-2110 to have a copy mailed to you. 

The group was formed as part of the Greendale Health Department Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  We welcome your input and suggestions-please send to greendalehealth@greendale.org or call
414-423-2110.

The SAGE workgroup joins the “Step Up to Better Health” and the “Food and Nutrition” CHIP workgroups also found on the health department website.
