Expanding Preventive Health Screenings to Empower Residents’ Well-Being

At Applewood, the focus on the well-being of our residents is always top of mind. In addition to our one-of-a-kind Physician Lecture Series, we offer comprehensive on-site screenings for residents. Applewood’s partnership with CentraState Medical Center, an Atlantic Healthcare System partner, opens a comprehensive array of wellness and healthcare opportunities for every resident empowering them with the knowledge and tools to lead a healthier life.

We kicked off on-site screenings in July with an A1C Screening that provided a 3-month average of blood glucose levels. Not just for diabetics, this screening was recommended for anyone curious about their status and wishing to stay on top of their health game – early detection is key to prevention.
