TIME TO REVIEW YOUR DIET!
Now would be a good time as we head for the summer, to have a look at how we got on diet-wise over the last two years.
HSE Community Dietitian AISLING LEONARD will be with us this at this month's meeting with loads of advice on how to shed those Covid weight add-ons!
Aisling will also talk about how their services are returning to normal and what services are back in action etc. Masks must continue to be worn at clinical appointments. The Discover Diabetes courses converted to Zoom meetings for the last two years, but now it is hopeful that these face-to-face meetings will recommence in the coming months.
A new way of caring for the health of older people has evolved within the HSE, and NICPOP = National Integrated Care Programme For Older People is up and running. Aisling hopes to have information on the Team that are delivering this new comprehensive care in Kerry.
NOTE! WE CONTINUE TO WEAR MASKS AT HEARTBEAT MEETINGS TO PROTECT OTHERS AND SO THAT ALL WHO COME CAN FEEL SAFE & AT EASE. PLEASE RESPECT THIS CONDITION OF ATTENDANCE. THANK YOU. ... See MoreSee Less

Medications.... Right ones? Right Doses? Questions? Worries?
We are delighted to announce that HeartBeat Pharmacist OWEN DALY is returning this month for a catch up on the ever changing world of medications. Brexit, Covid 19 and now War are all having a big impact on medications causing replacements/substitutions and changes in dosages at short notice.
Owen will talk about all of the above, tips on coping with changes and will advise any updates to the changes around the receiving of prescriptions due to Covid lockdowns.
He will also give us a look at the future and how to cope, and there will be a Q & A session at the end.
NOTE. As usual we advise writing your question down and bringing it with you to the meeting. We now use a second microphone for questions so everyone can hear what is being asked and answered clearly. “I don’t want to use a mic”? Then print your question clearly and place it on the speakers table before the meeting.
This meeting is all about QUESTIONS and getting your worries and concerns around medications sorted.
Our meeting starts from 8pm next Tuesday 26th April, in the Meeting Rooms beside the Church of the Resurrection (V93 WN32).
For more details on medications you can contact Owen at Kennellys Haven Pharmacy Tralee on 066 712 1042. ... See MoreSee Less
