The Allen County Council on Aging spent their morning getting seniors up to date on some routine medical checks.

Different community organizations came together to give free health checks on things like blood pressure and balance. They also offered free flu shots as well as an informational session on what to look for when it comes to their Medicare plans. It was a one-stop shop for seniors to take care of some medical needs without making a bunch of appointments.

"This is the place where they can come, there's no cost, and they can get things done all at one time that maybe they've missed or they'd like to get checked more frequently," said Judy Jacomet, Senior Services Resource Specialist. "We've had hearing screening, balance screening, blood pressure check, and cholesterol and blood sugar checks, and medication reviews by different community providers."

For those who would like assistance with their Medicare enrollment, the council is offering free help sessions starting October 15, 2018. Call ahead at (419) 228-5135 to schedule your appointment.
