We are working with Wellspring Faith in Action in Watonwan County to screen, counsel and refer Senior Citizens to resources available to be physically active, eat nutritious foods and quit tobacco. Their first screening clinic included a free health risk assessment, nail care treatments, blood pressure & glucose readings, along with information on physical therapy and massage treatments. This event also provided the community with information on how to receive other types of screenings at reduced costs such and mammogram screening and diabetes treatments.
For some low-income seniors, this is their only opportunity to seek these services. Wellspring will continue to work with seniors by offering more Senior Health Clinics and helping to refer and follow-up with seniors in need of additional resources.
Here are a few photos of the Health Screening Clinic:
