Health Education Lectures
Maintaining your health and properly taking care of your body becomes increasingly important as you age. With new information on health care being presented every day, Long Beach Memorial educates their seniors by organizing lectures with expert speakers to give our patients an opportunity to have their questions answered. Each Senior Plus member is supplied with a list of upcoming lectures and kept up-to-date through email.
In addition to the variety of free services provided to Senior Plus members there also are a number of discounted services available. Members receive special rates for exercise classes at Long Beach Memorial which are tailored to seniors, such as senior tai chi. Members also can pass time between doctor visits by enjoying discounted dining at Long Beach Memorial’s Seaside Café, a sit-down restaurant located in the hospital lobby, or shopping at our hospital gift shops.
As a special bonus, members receive discounted over-the-counter prescription drugs at Long Beach Memorial’s outpatient pharmacy and a special rate on a Lifeline personal emergency response system.
The Lifeline personal emergency response system is a portable medical alert device worn as a necklace to give older adults the freedom to leave their house and not depend on phones in case of an emergency.
Lack of transportation often causes older adult to miss their medical appointments. Follow-up appointments for older adults can be crucial to keeping them healthy year round, particularly for those with chronic conditions, such as diabetes. Once a member, older adults are eligible to receive free transportation to medical appointments at Long Beach Memorial, Community Hospital Long Beach and other MemorialCare locations in Long Beach.
The Senior Plus Program offers a bi-monthly postcard and e-newsletter informing members of upcoming events at the medical centers. The events are geared toward educating older adults about their overall health. Topics covered include: insurance for older adults, driving tips, nutrition, joint and bone health, heart health, mental health and more. This service enables older adults in the community to be more proactive about their health.
A Senior Plus membership also comes with discounted services for exercise programs, a Lifeline personal emergency response system, over-the-counter prescription drugs at Long Beach Memorial’s outpatient pharmacy and additional discounts at Long Beach Memorial.
