For High Desert Seniors

At St. Joseph Health, St. Mary, we understand the ever-changing healthcare needs of seniors. As such, we offer complete medical services, comprehensive online health information and our Senior Select program designed specifically for seniors. Please go to our events calendar to see upcoming Senior Select events.

The National Institutes of Health has posted an online guide to help seniors talk to their doctor. Tips include how to prepare for a doctor visit, what information to provide and how to understand what the doctor says. The guide is the latest addition to NIH Senior Health, which offers large-print sizes and other features designed to aid older users.

We also understand how overwhelming Medicare can be. We know that you're flooded with information, which can make it difficult to know what to do and when to do it. Whether you're just turning 65, have been on Medicare for some time, or have Medi-Cal and Medicare, we can help.

Want to do a checkup on your benefits? The National Council on Aging (NCOA) has developed and maintains a Web-based service to screen for benefits programs for seniors with limited income and resources. Click on the "Benefits Check Up" to research for help paying for prescription drugs, health care, utilities and other basic needs.
