we like to promote a healthy lifestyle through programs that advocate maintaining good health through preventative measures.. We have a Wellness Clinic that’s held on the third Tuesday of every month from 12:30 – 2:00 PM.working in Southborough and has offered to do a “Brown Bag Medication Review” a few times a year at our Senior Center during our Wellness Clinic. During the "check-up", the pharmacist will review all of the medications and products you are currently taking. He can double check these medications for the correct dosage strength, frequency, or identify if you are using outdated or discontinued medications.will be able to make an appointment with Janet Iacovelli, RN from SALMON VNA & Hospice. 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 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. 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. This wellness clinic is an opportunity to sit with Janet, the nurse, in a confidential setting and review health questions.
