LETTER: Health Connection an important outlet for seniors

Friday, March 20, 2009 | 4:43 p.m. CDT; updated 5:05 p.m. CDT, Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I am a senior on a fixed income and have been a member of the Health Connection for almost ten years. I have had two back surgeries and the Health Connection has been a very important facility for me in order to maintain the flexibility required for my every movement.

The Health Connection has served and is serving many seniors who come to the Health Connection with walkers and canes, who otherwise would not be able to afford other facilities in our area due to higher rates — seniors who are able to monitor their blood pressure and pulse rate frequently.

These are very difficult times financially for everyone but especially for seniors who are on a fixed income. The Health Connection is a very important facility, which enables everyone to maintain his or her physical health conditions.

It is important and imperative that the Health Connection remains operative.
