CCA member Johnnie feels deeply connected to music. He especially loves to sing. He delights in making friends in his southern Massachusetts neighborhood and everywhere he goes. He isn’t shy about letting people hear his voice or see his dance moves.
“I like getting to know people. I’m not afraid to talk to new people at all,” Johnnie said.
To Johnnie, living a healthy life means nurturing good habits. “You have to take care of yourself,” he says. “And if something comes up, you have to call your doctor and get yourself checked out.”
Johnnie prioritizes eating healthy foods and walks every day for exercise. He enjoys the simple things about his life. He is always ready to have fun, connect with his children and grandchildren, meet new people, and honor and celebrate his faith. While Johnnie dealt with addiction in his past, he does not dwell on it. He has been sober for more than 30 years.
Through his CCA plan, Johnnie keeps up with routine care like physicals and screenings. He appreciates the opportunity to check in with his care team and talk about anything that is going on with his life. In the past, he has gone through counseling through CCA.
“I like that they call me!” he says of CCA.
Johnnie’s goals for the future are to stay healthy, stay positive, and “keep miracles in [his] life.”
