As well as offering personalized senior care medical services, many Palm Medical Centers also celebrate Senior Appreciation Wednesday every week. This is a fun, open way for seniors in the community to come and meet our staff and see what we offer.
Many of our locations also offer on-site senior wellness centers. These provide a wide range of physically and mentally stimulating activities, festive social events, and educational classes to promote total health and wellness – and to help prevent disease for patients who are age 65 and over.
Let’s talk about what you can look forward to during Senior Appreciation Wednesday, and where you can go to find our location near you – so you can celebrate with us next Wednesday!

Why Keeping Active Is So Important
Maintaining good physical health and mental health can help to reduce the chances of developing many chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and some cancers. Seniors who exercise regularly tend to have improved immune and digestive functioning, a healthier blood pressure, better bone density, and improved sleep quality.
Recreational activities, such as those offered at Palm Medical Centers’ wellness centers, provide important benefits for older adults including:
- Physical benefits, such as improving strength, balance, flexibility, and range of motion
- Mental benefits, including enhancing emotional well-being, self-confidence, and motivation, as well as lowering stress levels
- Social benefits, such as the opportunity to make new friends and have access to a wider social network
Patient-Focused Primary Care
In addition to the health and wellness activities we offer at Palm Medical Centers, we also provide high-quality primary senior care to ensure all your health needs are addressed accordingly. Primary care is an important way of keeping you healthy by managing both acute illnesses and chronic conditions effectively and preventing future health issues.
