LiveHealthyLorainCounty.com is an interactive partnership between Lorain County Public Health and LorainCounty.com. This site is designed to encourage Lorain County residents to move more, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables where we live, work and play.
The site provides local health announcements, tips, and ideas on how to add more health and happiness to your life and to your loved ones' lives, too.
The site is also home to Lorain County Walks, a lifestyle fitness program designed to help you be active and healthy. Users can enter the number of steps they walk each day, view a chart of their steps, compare their steps with the community average, join teams, and build a personal profile.
Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) works with partners around the region to make it safer and easier for people to be physically active. Active transportation - or human powered travel, like walking and biking - helps people meet daily physical activity recommendations.
Age-related changes, disabilities, and chronic health conditions may make it difficult to go grocery shopping, especially in rural locations and for people with a low income. The Coalition for Quality Aging (CQA), which works to improve the quality of aging for older adults in Lorain County, identified this barrier and worked to find solutions. CQA partners at Oberlin Community Services (OCS) proposed to test out a food delivery service for people in southern Lorain County who can’t get to the store due to disability or age-related challenges.
