The Good LIFE – June 2023

Each day, the LIFE Centers of Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, and Lawrence counties support the needs and services of participants. LIFE’s managed care model helps support older adults live independently at home with the monitored care they need to thrive in their neighborhood.

June has been an incredible month at our LIFE Centers, filled with fun events and unforgettable moments. LIFE Armstrong proudly hosted their very own county fair with plenty of funnel cake to go around. Meanwhile, LIFE Beaver Count celebrated Father’s Day by paying tribute to the men of LIFE Beaver. Over at LIFE Butler, it was time to sing “Take me out to the ball game” for a trip to the Pittsburgh Pirates game while also hosting a senior prom for participants. LIFE Lawrence County teamed up with LIFE Butler for an exciting trip to Moraine State Park.
