Shoreline/LFP Senior Center in partnership with Bastyr University introduces the “Spanish Healthcare project”.

Located in the Shoreline neighborhood, this senior center shift started spring quarter 2005 and has already become extremely popular with the Shoreline/LFP Senior Center community. 

Students on this shift assess geriatric patients who may present with diabetes, skin disorders, hypertension, glaucoma, fatigue, and GI complaints.

Bastyr University will now also provide natural health services to low-income Spanish speaking families in the shoreline/Lake Forest Park area on Mondays from 1-5 pm with a $15 donation to the senior center.

Naturopathic Physicians are trained in conventional and alternative medicine to treat many medical conditions both acute and chronic. Shoreline/LFP Senior Center’s clients benefit from various treatment modalities including nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, pharmaceutical medication, and hands on therapies including spinal manipulation. At the end of each visit, clients are provided with a written treatment plan with various treatment recommendations.

Through Bastyr University, Shoreline/LFP Senior Center receives donations in the form of supplements and vitamins at the beginning of each quarter. These donations are passed on to Shoreline/LFP Senior Center’s low-income Hispanic clients and seniors. The Bastyr students and medical staff review prescription medications and ensure there is no harmful interaction with any supplements or other medications that they may prescribe.
