June 5 to June 11 is Community Health Improvement Week. Community Health Improvement Week was formed by the Association for Community Health Improvement (ACHI) to acknowledge all the efforts of health professionals and create awareness regarding the work they do. The week is designed to honor healthcare professionals who serve their communities and improve the lives of their neighbors. ElderNet has had a long partnership with Main Line Health, providing free health resources through the Ask a Nurse Program.
Currently, there is a nurse available every 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 10AM-Noon at ElderNet’s food pantry to answer medical questions, explain prescriptions and take participant’s blood pressure. Please join us in honoring the medical staff in our community who have done so much the last two years during the pandemic, and who do so much for our participants.
June 1 to June 7 is also National CPR and AED Awareness Week. The ElderNet staff will be getting their CPR certification training at the end of the month. Consider becoming CPR certified to be better prepared to serve your neighbors or older adults in the community should an emergency arise.
