STREETSBORO, Ohio, Nov. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of an ongoing collaboration among Streetsboro Senior Center, the Streetsboro Fire Department and MyChoice®, a free Pancake Breakfast will be held Friday, December 1 at the senior center (9184 OH-43 behind Streetsboro City Hall) for residents 55 and older, starting at 10:30 a.m.
Separate from the breakfast, a Health & Wellness Clinic will be offered by local mobile health clinic and multi-specialty medical group practice MyChoice®, from 12:30-2:30 p.m.
"The Pancake Breakfast will bring light to our collaboration with Streetsboro First Responders," says Mandy Picone, Certified Nurse Practitioner and MyChoice® Director of Provider Services. "The senior center also wants to attract more members so they can bring more programming and services to the community."
Creating a network of local and county resources to assist those in need, the Streetsboro Fire Department and First Responders are partnering with the senior center and MyChoice® in order to help fill the gap between individuals' primary care physicians and a medical event that requires an emergency response.
As part of that effort, MyChoice® has offered two mobile clinics every week at the senior center throughout the month of November in order to provide convenient access for area residents. During a MyChoice® health and wellness visit, a health care provider checks each individual's blood pressure, heart rate, weight and more, including a physical assessment and a personalized preventative care plan. MyChoice® representatives will also educate and assist seniors regarding Advance Care Planning. This includes a Living Will, a Healthcare Power of Attorney, a Do Not Resuscitate Order and a Do Not Resuscitate Order Comfort Care.
Remaining Walk-in Health Clinics at the Streetsboro Senior Center in November:
Wednesday, November 22, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday, November 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday, November 28, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Thursday, November 30, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
In December, MyChoice® mobile clinics will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Thursday of the month. Call MyChoice® at (330) 297-7931 for more dates and times, or to schedule a home visit.
All of these services are covered by insurance, and co-pays may apply. Special pricing is available to those who qualify. Participants should bring their valid personal identification and insurance cards, list of medications and any previous advance care plans with them to the mobile clinic.
All the healthcare information collected by MyChoice® will be uploaded onto each individual's secure Electronic Personal Health Record (ePHR). The Streetsboro Fire Department will have access to it in the event of an emergency so first responders can use immediate up-to-date, accurate health information to deliver efficient and effective medical treatment.
For those planning to attend the Pancake Breakfast, please RSVP to Streetsboro Senior Center by November 27 at (330) 626-2398.
