Health Help & Screenings
The Brea Senior Center aims to provide important information regarding health services for people 60 years and older. Do you, or someone you know, need assistance in these areas?
Blood Pressure Monitoring
9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
High blood pressure increases your chance (or risk) for getting heart disease and/or kidney disease and for having a stroke. It is especially dangerous because it often has no warning signs or symptoms. It is estimated that one in every four American adults has high blood pressure. Once high blood pressure develops, it usually lasts a lifetime. You can prevent and control high blood pressure by taking action. Stop in each week for your free monitoring record.
