Senior Health Care Clinics

Caregiver Health Assessments

Family caregivers do a lot to enhance the health and well being of the person they provide care to. It is also important that the caregiver take good care of themselves as well. Caregivers have special needs and can benefit from flexible health promotion services designed to fit their busy schedules.

Services are free to caregivers and include:

  • Stress Management/Fitness Consultations with Certified Personal Trainer
  • Nutrition Assessments and Counseling with a Registered Dietitian

Appointments can be set up at the home of the caregiver or another location (e.g. senior center) that is convenient for the caregiver.
