Health and Wellness
Our goal is to provide a gathering place that promotes the independence of all seniors through a variety of programs and activities developed to enhance their life. Keep yourself healthy with one of our great programs.
Breast Education & Mammogram Screenings
For women 40+ Have Peace of Mind!!
There is no better time than the present to make your breast health a priority. It’s a new year; you’re looking good, so let’s make sure you feel good. Wellness starts from the inside. There is no better time than the present to make or maintain good breast health. The Swedish mobile mammography coach is coming to the Southeast Seattle Senior Center on the following dates:
As a special incentive, all women who come into the Center for their annual mammogram performed on the Swedish coach will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card from Safeway grocery store. If you bring a friend with you to get a mammogram, your chances for winning the gift card are doubled! All women 40+ can use the service. Swedish accepts most forms of insurance including Medicare and Medicaid. The only insurance not accepted is GAU. If you feel you are in need of mammography services and are not yet 40 years of age, please check with your doctor or call the number below.
If you are not a senior and don’t have insurance you can still get a mammogram. The BCCHP (Breast, Cervical and Colon Health Program) program will provide funding to cover a health exam and mammogram for qualifying women age 40-64. For more information on this service or to sign up for an appointment, please call Lena Scott at 206-727-6265.
