SESCIL - IN SYNC WITH SENIORS AND THEIR HEALTH NEEDS
Englewood, New Jersey December 09, 2006 Health News(PRLEAP.COM) The Southeast Senior Center for Independent Living (SESCIL) of Englewood, in Bergen County, New Jersey, has a multifaceted and humane approach to providing seniors with medical programs that are in sync with their health needs. Seniors, 55 and over, can benefit from SESCILís myriad programs and services by simply joining the Center, free of charge: all they need to do is to call 201-569-4080. Also, there is NO charge for any classes, including exercises and recreational activities, held at the Center.
- SESCIL has a fully-equipped dental office, on site, offering low-fee dentistry, which is approximately 50% less than the "going" rate anywhere else. New Jersey Licensed Dentists provide all but the most complicated work. Two Hygienists are also on staff. This service is of paramount importance in maintaining general good health, especially for seniors, because poor dental care can have an overall negative affect on ones entire system.
- A Podiatrist is at the Center weekly. An important part of his practice deals with diabetic foot care and educating people who suffer from diabetes. Shoes are provided for diabetics through Medicare, as well as for those with special podiatric problems.
- An Audiologist is available to test ones hearing, and thatís covered by Medicare and most HMOs.
- A Registered Nurse interviews all members to assess their individual health status and follows up on those who need further care or education. Blood pressure clinics, as well as individual counseling, are held on a bi-monthly basis. The Nurse and a Doctor, whose specialty is weight control, hold weekly classes and weigh-ins. Obesity is a major source of serious health problems. By addressing this issue SESCIL feels that it can help seniors live a healthier and more independent life. The nurse also leads weekly classes about a host of health issues and educates members how best they can live their lives and enjoy optimum health during their golden years.
