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. View the
April calendars for presentations at the Senior Select Resource Center. Calendars are subject to change without notice.
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.
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.
