WELLNESS – The Council on Aging Wellness program consists of clinics, consultations and educational programs designed to support healthy aging. Clinics include blood pressure and blood sugar monitoring, podiatry and other special clinics such as the yearly flu immunization.
Blood Pressure Screening: Wednesdays from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM, nurses are available to take your blood pressure and answer questions. To get the most out of your visit please bring a list of medications you are taking. No need to call ahead just come in.
Diabetic Clinic: The third Wednesday of each month from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM, our Diabetic Nurse will check blood sugar and address any concerns you may have regarding a pre-diabetic or diabetic condition, including nutritional counseling. She has a wealth of knowledge with over 25 years of Visiting Nurse experience. No need to sign up.
Eye Glass Cleaning and Adjustment: The last Wednesday of each month from 11:30 AM to Noon. We are very fortunate to be able to offer free eye glass cleaning and minor adjustment at the Harvey Wheeler Center, provided by Alex Thayer, from Look Optical in Maynard.
Listen & Learn: Our Listen & Learn events offer a unique opportunity to hear an educational and interesting speaker talking about current, relevant health topics.
Podiatry Clinic: Once a month the Council on Aging sponsors a podiatry clinic at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center. Dr. Russell Hamilton and Dr. Ayleen Gregorian join us alternating months.
