Wellness

healthy communities, healthy workplaces

Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services is committed to the wellness of the communities we serve.  Our Wellness program offers community clinics and exercise programs.

 

The Nurse Is In Clinics– Drop in and see a nurse; no appointment necessary. Have your blood pressure checked and ask questions that are not emergency in nature.

 

 

Foot Care Clinics – Available by appointment only; call 352-2253.  A nurse provides nail trimming, assessment, and referral to a podiatrist, if appropriate.  A doctor’s referral is necessary for those with diabetes and circulatory problems.

 

Flu Immunizations – Offered in the fall at clinics and by arrangement for local businesses.

 

Age In Motion – Exercise programs designed especially for seniors who would like to work on strength, balance and prevention of falls. Sessions consist of warm-ups, lifting weights, exercises for balance and flexibility and a cool down period. Trained instructors lead the class.  A doctor’s release is necessary.  A donation of $2 per class is requested. New members are welcome at any time. For a registration packet or more information, contact Jo-Anne at 352-2253.
