Staying active, involved and informed about your health is important to maintain an independent and healthy life, especially as you grow older. That’s why Vanguard Weiss Memorial Hospital has developed WISE—the Weiss Initiative Supporting Elders, a free wellness program for adults age 60 and older.
WISE is designed to help you feel your best by offering educational, social and wellness programs geared toward the special needs and concerns of seniors. View our newsletters.
Your WISE membership card entitles you to a wide variety of benefits, discounts and services, absolutely free. These include:
Free education programs are offered each month about issues important to you, like Medicare, insurance, retirement and health-related topics.
Exercise in an important part of keeping healthy. Walking groups in the summer months and exercise groups in the winter months will help you stay physically fit. Check out our exercise classes for seniors.
Monthly support groups help build resources and support as you deal with the curve balls that life throws you, like stroke, Alzheimer’s or cancer.
The WISE program offers a variety of screenings throughout the year to help determine your risk factors for such health issues as:
- Elevated cholesterol
- Colon cancer
- Prostate cancer
As a member, you’ll receive regular notification of these programs and will have access to health care professionals, like nurses, dietitians and audiologists to help guide you in maintaining your health.
Your membership entitles you to cafeteria discounts at Weiss. It’s a great opportunity to get a healthy meal at a sensible price.
Your membership entitles you to discounted valet parking every time you visit Weiss.
Membership in the WISE senior program gives you access to our members lounge. The lounge is designed to make your outpatient visit to the hospital more comfortable, whether it is with a cup of coffee, assistance getting to your appointment or just a place to rest before you’re ready to leave for the day.
