Aging & Long Term Care of Eastern Washington (ALTCEW) is a social service agency that helps older adults and people living with disabilities stay in their homes. ALTCEW provides case management for people who need a caregiver, caregiver training, and answers to questions about Medicare and Medicaid.

The mission of ALTCEW is to promote well-being, independence, dignity, and choice for all older persons and individuals needing long term care.

 

This mission cannot be completed alone, so ALTCEW works with local partners in the community to provide services such as home delivered meals, family caregiver support, transportation and information. Through community partners, ALTCEW provides funding for services to older adults and individuals living with a disability in their five-county area.

Volunteering at ALTCEW​

Chances are you know someone who has fallen or who is afraid of falling. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a proven program designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity. Aging & Long Term Care of Eastern Washington is looking for volunteers to help provide this program.

 

A Matter of Balance coaches need good communication and interpersonal skills, enthusiasm, dependability and a willingness to lead small groups of older adults. Coaches also need to be able to lead low to moderate level exercise. Pairs of trained coaches with the support of a master trainer lead Matter of Balance classes.

 

A Matter of Balance is conducted in 8 two-hour sessions and uses group discussion, problem-solving strategies, videos and gentle physical exercise. Older adults learn positive coping methods to reduce fear of falling and remain active and independent.
