GLASGOW CARE HOMES OFFERING FREE HEALTH CHECKS FOR OVER 75s THIS WEEK
Friday, July 14th, 2017
on behalf of Bupa Care Services
Four of Bupa’s care homes across Glasgow are opening their doors this week to members of the local elderly community, inviting them to get a free health check.
The four homes – Quayside, Hill View, Norwood and Ailsa Craig care homes, located across Glasgow (see details below) – are all taking part in the event, each offering two-hour windows during the week.
A range of free health examinations are available to people aged 75 and over. They can choose from a half an hour chiropody appointment, a hearing check by Amplifon or an eye health check by Vision Care at Home. They also have the choice to get a blood pressure, height, weight and BMI check by a qualified nurse.
Aileen Waton, Managing Director of Bupa Care Services in Scotland, said: “We understand it’s not always easy to visit the GP or optician when you’re elderly. It can be tempting to shake off any aches and pains as you get older and blame these on the aging process, but there may be a range of different options to ease or even remedy these, so it is worth getting them checked out.
“By running these free health checks in four of our care homes across Glasgow, we hope to provide easy access for the elderly community to raise any concerns they may have. We’d encourage anyone interested to come along, even just to chat to one of our nurses.”
The free health checks will be available at each participating Bupa care home on the following days:
Quayside Care Home, 250 Halley Street, Yoker – Monday 17th July from 2pm to 4pm
Hill View Care Home, 36 Singer Road, Clydebank – Tuesday 18th July from 10am to 2pm
Norwood Care Home, 39 Victoria Road, Barrhead – Wednesday 19th July from 2pm to 4pm
Ailsa Craig Care Home, 101 Brand Street, Cessnock – Thursday 20th July from 10am to 12pm
Pre-booking is essential, and those interested in attending can book a place by calling Bupa on 0808 2746 305 or emailing [email protected].
