Wesley Chapel is fortunate to have their own Parish Nurse, Marlene Gardner, RN. Marlene completed the Shenandoah University Faith Based Community Nurse Program through a grant from the PATH Foundation.

The Parish Nurse is an integrator of faith and health, a personal health counselor, and promotes health and health education.

We currently offer twice weekly mainly chair-based exercise programs. They include stretch, strengthen, balance and cardio workouts. It’s tougher than it sounds!  Physician/Health Care provider approval is highly recommended. We use a variety of DVDs and the group decides what they need for that day.

Blood pressure, heart rate, weights, oxygen level are available during exercise class and any Sunday upon requests.

Marlene is also willing to help you prepare for your physician appointments. Making lists of prescribed medications, over the counter medications and supplement lists as well as forming questions and goals for your appointments.

Have a question? Wondering how the Parish Nurse may help you? Please contact us. Feel free to leave a message on the church phone, or send an email to parishnurse@religious.com
