Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association Recognized by Tivity Health for Contributions to Reduce Social Isolation and Improve the Health of Older Adults

Tivity Health®, recognized the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association (LSA) at the 2019 Connectivity Summit on Rural Aging for extensive work to promote healthier aging and social connectivity for older adults. The LSA is one of 19 organizations nationwide recognized for community-based programs that successfully promote healthier aging and social connectivity.

This year’s Connectivity Summit is focused on the conditions in which people live, work and age – also known as the social determinants of health – exploring how these factors impact the health of older Americans living in rural areas and solutions that can mitigate their impact.

“At Tivity Health, we are committed to improving the lives of aging adults who live in rural communities,” said Donato Tramuto, Chief Executive Officer, Tivity Health. “This movement begins at the community level, and we congratulate our 2019 Community Connectivity Award recipients in this mission and thank them for all that they are doing to improve the quality of life for many older adults.”

The Summit will be an incubator for collaboration among diverse stakeholders to evaluate existing models of success and to consider new opportunities to address social isolation and improve the well-being of rural seniors.

“We are so proud that Louisiana’s sheriffs are taking the initiative by creating community programs that reach out to our elderly population,” said Michael Ranatza, Executive Director, Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association. “West Feliciana Sheriff Austin Daniel is one of many who helps to “fill the gaps” and meet the needs of our aging communities throughout Louisiana.”

The LSA was recognized in the storybook Aging Well in Rural America: A Collection of Stories from the Heartland, highlighting 19 organizations around the country who embody the spirit of improving seniors’ lives in rural America.
