Sept 26: Free senior health fair at VNA

VNA Health Care will offer its popular Senior Wellness Fair on September 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All members of the community are invited to attend this free event to learn about useful and important services offered to seniors in the greater Aurora area.

This year’s Senior Wellness Fair features: flu vaccines, free health screenings (including blood pressure, bone density, and Diabetes), information and presentations on community services, medication safety; and free giveaways and snacks. Seniors who present a valid Medicare part B card will not be charged for the flu shot; VNA will bill Medicare. All others pay $20 cash or check.

The Senior Wellness Fair will take place at VNA Health Care, 400 North Highland Avenue, Aurora on the second floor. No reservations are necessary; this is a free event open to all.

The VNA Health Center (also located in the 400 North Highland building) specializes in providing primary health care to seniors. Services include wellness care and annual preventative exams and screenings; treatment of chronic diseases and acute illness; laboratory (blood work); bone density testing; digital mammography; and pharmacy services.

VNA accepts new Medicare patients and is the only health facility in the greater Aurora area that offers special medication discounts through the new 340B Program of the federal government. By seeing a VNA physician, seniors can receive discounts on prescriptions drugs that are only available through VNA due to its status as a Federally qualified health center. This program can provide discounts of 50% or more. In addition, VNA Pharmacy offers $4 generic prescriptions.
