It is a personal resource guide for the 60 and above client base for activities and services from Redwood City to Foster City to encourage independence amongst the older population. It includes a wide array of categories, such as fitness and social activities, volunteer opportunities, transportation, enrichment, and support groups. This is not an acute healthcare provider; however, it is a primary prevention effort by Sequoia Healthcare District to increase wellness among the older population in the county.
