What is a Wellness Clinic for seniors?
It is a convenient location where seniors can drop in without an appointment to speak at length with a health care professional and have vital signs monitored.
The Wellness Clinic is a supplement to, and not a substitute for, the care provided by family physicians and walk-in clinics. Preventative care is important! Some family physicians refer their patients to the clinic for observation. Regular visits to the Wellness Clinic can detect changes in health.
Who are the clinic staff?
The clinic is staffed by volunteer, retired Registered Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses. They monitor vital signs, listen to concerns and refer to medical services in the community.
What services are provided?
Blood pressure, pulse, height and weight are monitored and recorded. Blood glucose monitoring is available. The clinic also provides an opportunity to chat at length with one of the registered nurses and some peer counselling. The clinic also provides other professional resources as scheduled including: Optometrist, Hearing and Vision Testing, Pharmacist, Diabetes Counselling, Dementia and Memory Loss consulting and Cholesterol screening.
