BLOOD PRESSURE & WELLNESS CLINICS
The Blood Pressure and Wellness Clinics offered at the Senior Center and the Housing in Northborough are a valuable service. Many of us are asked by our Doctor
or health care provider to have our blood pressure checked before returning for our next appointment. Janet Iacovelli, RN from SALMON VNA & Hospice is happy to help you out with that. She’ll
document your blood pressures so that you ‘ll have a log for the next time you see your health provider. See the dates and times below that Janet is available.
The nurse also offers a clinic on the third Tuesday of every month from 12:30–2:00 PM at the Senior Center. Janet is available to speak with you regarding general health questions and education, referrals, preventative health care advice, medication consultations, and glucose screening for those individuals who bring their own glucometers. Often times, people feel rushed when seeing their health care provider. This wellness clinic is an opportunity to sit with Janet, the nurse in a confidential setting and review health questions.
Additionally, the Northborough Board of Health has generously partnered with SALMON VNA & Hospice to offer a blood pressure clinic the first Tuesday of every month from 1:00–2:00 PM at the Senior Center and additionally, a blood pressure clinic at the Northborough Housing Authority, 26 Village Drive on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 1:00-2:00 PM.
These services are free of charge and are made possible by the efforts and funding of the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center, Inc. and the Northborough Board of Health in recognition of the importance of extending public health services to our valuable senior population. See the dates and times at right and then plan to visit with Janet soon!
