Free Health Camp for Marginalized Senior Citizens

Nightingales Medical Trust(NMT) in collaboration with Regal Hospital, Bengaluru, organized a Free general health check up camp at Sandhya Kirana, Kothanur on 20th May, 2017 (Saturday) from 10 am to 1:30 pm.

Health issues are of major concern for every senior citizen, irrespective of their social or economic background. However, not every elder gets the opportunity for regular health check-up, despite the need.

The health camp at Nightingales Sandhya Kirana included a free package of ECG, Blood Pressure and Memory Screening. Dr Umesh of Regal Hospital provided medical consultation. Free medicines were given to 57 needy elders in and around Kothanur. A team of Psychologists conducted Dementia Screening for the elders. Sumptuous lunch was provided to all elders.

NMT extends its gratefulness to the volunteers from Volunteers for a Cause (VFC) for helping us through out the program and to Regal Hospital for partnering with us.
