Dementia

For years, the term dementia has been defined as a severe progression of mental decline affecting older adults. Although dementia results in loss of mental ability affecting daily living, it is not a direct sign of growing older. Dementia is a non-specific disease termed to describe a group of symptoms associated with memory loss. Join us for free blood pressure screenings and to learn more about the disease and its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and preventions.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a disorder that affects how your body uses blood sugar (glucose) resulting in two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Each has their own set of symptoms. Many times, these symptoms go unnoticed or appear harmless which means diabetes often goes undiagnosed. Knowing your blood glucose levels can help you prevent or manage diabetes!

Bones

Are your bones becoming more of a concern as you age? Does your fear of falling stem from a fear of breaking your bones?
