Full- and part-time staff members are eligible for the following wellness benefits: flu shots, health screenings, health-risk appraisals, smoking-cessation programs, discounts to health clubs, physical-activity programs, weight-loss programs, and stress-management training. In the past 12 months, 80 percent of LMHS employees have used at least one of these wellness benefits.

The Share Club also provides benefits, including discounts on prescriptions, lectures on Alzheimer’s disease, exercise classes, caregiver education, Parkinson’s care, and geriatric consultations.
