Grant promotes safety for seniors
Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN
MINNEAPOLIS — UCare’s community benefit program has awarded $15,000 to Mower County Seniors, Inc., to support its health and safety promotion efforts.
UCare is an independent, non-profit health plan that provides health care and administrative services to more than 130,000 members in the state.
The money will be used to help fund the senior center’s home safety and health and wellness fairs.
The home safety fair addresses a variety of topics including how to prevent falls and make rooms safe, how to call for help and what to do in an emergency.
The health and wellness fair includes flu shots; screenings for vision, hearing, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol; foot care, chiropractic care, senior companion information and mobility equipment.
The community and county giving program is a collaboration between UCare and its partners to benefit areas by improving their health status and quality of life.
