Doctors Assist Seniors at Home with the DASH PROGRAM

Jeannie West, DASH Program

Jeannie West, DASH Program

Jeannie West describes the DASH (Doctors Assisting Seniors at Home) program. If you are over the age of 60, you’ll want to know about DASH. Once you sign up with DASH, you can call on the DASH doctors for urgent care. It does not replace your primary physician but is likely to minimize trips to the Emergency Room. Those with a low income and on Medi-CAL may qualify for these services at no charge. For more information, visit http://www.dashsb.com or call 805-617-0049

John Kerr, Vietnam Vet

Be sure to share the information in this show with any veterans who are in need. Our guest, John Kerr, is a Vietnam Vet. He wants to be sure that today’s young heroes are treated with respect and given the help that they so deserve–the type of treatment that was so lacking for Vietnam Vets returning from war. John is involved in Stand Down Santa Barbara, an upcoming event to help all veterans, young or old. Stand Down Santa Santa Barbara County will take place at the Santa Maria Fairpark on October 19th. It kicks off at 9 a.m. with a complimentary breakfast and lasts until 3 p.m. Rides from Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley area will be provided to veterans at no charge. There will be close to 70 service providers at the event offering everything from haircuts to dental screening to legal services. For more information about Stand Down Santa Barbara County and to make transportation arrangements call 805-346-8402 or visit sbcountystanddown.com

A BIG THANK YOU TO SENIOR HELPERS OF SANTA BARBARA AND RSVP, (THE RETIRED SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM), FOR SUPPORTING THIS SHOW.
