For Medical Professionals

An Introduction to Meadowlark’s Resources

We know you have a lot on your plate with so many people to care for, especially seniors who have unique health and wellness concerns.

We created this section of our website to help you share valuable information on the aging process with your patients and their families. Here we provide you with resources geared toward you, as well as information on services and programs that may be of interest to your patients.

We also offer a binder with hard copies of these materials, plus hand outs for your patients. If you would like to request a copy of the binder for your office, please contact us.
