The Ottawa County Health Department will receive $23,916 to provide the 60-Plus Nursing Assessment Clinics this year.
Last month, Ottawa County Commissioners selected the health department to handle the program for 2012, based on a recommendation from the Senior Resources Director. Ottawa County Commissioners receive the funding through the Community Development Block Grant Funding program.
The clinics will provide services to Ottawa County seniors in seven locations throughout the county. Services include blood pressure and cholesterol checks, medication counseling, nutrition programs and other services.
“I’m happy to be given the chance to serve the seniors of Ottawa County — one of the fastest growing segments of our local population,” said Ottawa County Health Commissioner Nancy Osborn.
