Florida Retirement Communities Health and Wellness Updates
By Abby Renardson
We continue to endure a long, hot summer, but we are starting to see glimpses of the many changes that fall will bring. Health Concepts has many Wellness activities in the works for you, and hope that each of you will find something of great value in your continuing quest for greater health and well being.
Take a close look at the September Wellness and Fitness calendar. We will be taking a long Labor Day weekend so there will be no Group fitness Classes on September 3rd or 6th. We hope you will be relaxing and enjoying your family and friends, and attending to the social and spirituals aspects of the wellness continuum! Also, Zumba will be taking a vacation for the month of September. Check the October calendar for restart date.
VaxCare will again be offering on-site seasonal flu shots this year, as well as the pneumonia and tetanus vaccines. The dates are September 14th and October 5th, both from 10 a.m. to noon in the HFC Craft Room. For those who are covered by Medicare Part B, both the flu shot and pneumonia vaccines are fully covered, and will be provided at no charge. Just bring your Medicare coverage information. For all, the tetanus vaccine cost $45. For those not covered by Medicare B, the cost of the flu shot and pneumonia vaccine are each $25 or $50 for both, payable by cash, check, or credit card to VaxCare. This is a great opportunity to protect yourself from these sometimes deadly diseases, so take advantage of this convenient service.
