“Living so far from my mom is challenging but thanks to the JCC’s preventative health program, I can rest assured knowing they are keeping a close eye on her health and will let me know if I have any reason to be concerned and when its time to follow up with a doctor” Amy – Long distant caregiver

Preventative Health Programs

Nutrition Monitoring
Checking weight and asking questions about how one is eating can detect malnutrition before it leads to more serious conditions.

Blood Pressure Monitoring
Blood pressure monitoring is vital in the prevention and treatment of blood-pressure–related diseases such as heart attacks, strokes and heart failure.

Pulmonary Monitoring
Pulmonary monitoring can detect asthma and other lung conditions before they become chronic. Nurses will check respiratory rates, lung sounds, and Oxygen saturation monthly and alert participants if follow up care is needed.
