This summer, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee announced their new partnership with St. Camillus to establish a Parish Wellness Clinic in Waukesha. This first clinic, and those to follow, will offer a presence of care and wellness at the parish level, embodying the shared mission of pastoral care on the part of the parish together with the mission of the Order of St. Camillus.
This new collaboration between the archdiocese and St. Camillus will offer a holistic health and wellness center dedicated to improving the quality of life, and promoting the wellbeing and healthy aging for the parishioners of the Catholic Community of Waukesha.
St. Camillus Life Plan Community offers a full spectrum of programs and services, and is well known locally for their vibrant independent living community, as well as assisted living facilities, memory care and short term rehabilitation. As St. Camillus marks its 100th anniversary of the Camillian Order’s arrival in the United States, they are looking beyond their borders to actively engage the community to fulfill the original mission that brought the Order of Camillus here to Milwaukee so many years ago.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee was happy to announce their new partnership with St. Camillus on the first ever World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly, observed worldwide on the fourth Sunday in July and newly-instituted by Pope Francis.
The Catholic Community of Waukesha/St. John Neumann Parish is the site of the first Parish Wellness Clinic. Working together to make “aging in place” a reality, the new clinic will offer an array of wellness services such as health screenings, health care education and coordination, medication and lab consultation, vital checks and community resource coordination. They will also provide monthly “Healthy Chats” and quarterly presentations on health related topics important to seniors.
