Remember that the service is FREE to residents 50 and over who do not have medical insurance or are on Medicaid. We are encouraging seniors who meet these guidelines to take advantage of the program. The goal of the program is to increase the wellness of our senior citizens in our community who do not have access to these services.
“From September 2014 to September 2015, we were able to see 1,133 seniors,” Deputy Chief Robert Arvizu said. “We want to continue the great success of last year into the coming calendar year.”
For more information, citizens are encouraged to call 311 or visit www.ephealth.com.
