Health & Wholeness

Receive care for the body, soul and Spirit!

 

Health and Wellness Checks
We are blessed to have a parish nurse, which gives us the ability to do Health and Wellness checks on an ongoing basis, individually and church-wide. This includes visits to new moms, blood pressure checks, follow-ups after hospital stays, and of course, hospital, home and nursing home visits.

 

Walking Club
Offered in the spring and fall, our Walking Club members meet at the Horsham power line trail on Dresher Road each Tuesday night at 7 PM. The walk is approximately 3 miles and everyone walks at their own pace. All fitness levels welcome.

 

Older Adult Seminars
Offered in the spring and fall, these two-hour seminars consist of a presentation that focuses on a specific health topic, followed by a luncheon. All older adults and their friends are most welcome and encouraged to attend.
 
 
Medical Equipment Inventory
We have a variety of medical equipment available to loan or to provide permanently to those in need. Items include wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs, potty chairs, canes, incontinence products and more.
 
 
Individual Health Counseling and Assistance
The parish nurse is available by appointment to provide information about medical conditions, medical treatments, and aid in obtaining health services. Regular blood pressure monitoring is also available for anyone with hypertension or the need to determine medication effectiveness. Parish members currently in the hospital, recently discharged from the hospital, new mothers, and those in rehab receive visits, follow-up, and assistance where needed.
 
 
Visitation Ministry
A team of specially trained volunteers make visits on a bi-weekly or monthly basis to all those members of Lehman who are no longer able, because of age and/or infirmity, to come out to church. Our goal is to maintain the connection with our “insiders” as fully integrated members of our congregation.
 
 
Blood Pressure Screening
Periodically throughout the year, we have blood pressure checks after Sunday services.
 
Our members also have the confidence that our parish nurse and other caregivers in our congregation can be consulted at any time.
