BLOOD PRESSURE AND WELLNESS CLINICS
The Northborough Senior Center is pleased to partner with SALMON VNA & Hospice to provide an on-site wellness nurse. The nurse offers a clinic on the third Tuesday of every
month from 12:30 – 2:00 PM, which will include general health screening 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 physician. This wellness clinic is an opportunity to sit with 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 and additionally, a blood pressure clinic 2nd Thursday of the month. 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.
