Our survey revealed that the most common health problems of our clients are high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis & back problem. Our programs provide healthy meals and foods, exercise, blood pressure and diabetes monitoring and access to health and social assistance.
Seniors also indicated that they fear to be alone and hungry. Socialization is very important to prevent depression and loneliness. PAEP provides social and networking opportunities for the elderly.
Fear of language and cultural barriers in dealing with mainstream government and private offices. Our programs provide them an opportunity to get help from volunteer interpreters and networking with agencies sympathetic to the ethnic communities.
PAEP’s service gap: we have earned the trust of our clients. We have 1200 clients with 1,000 as regulars. There are so many more things we can do to address their fears and concerns. However, funding and lack of other resources pose as major problems.
