News and events News Bloomhill at the I Age Well Expo Bloomhill was excited to be one of the exhibitors at this year’s IAgeWell Over 50’s Lifestyle Expo. The wide range of exhibits covered health and wellness, travel, finance and retirement planning, recreation and fitness, employment and education. The event attracted over 60 exhibitors, and included a live band, performances, workshops, great food, a fashion show with free bubbles.... and more! Association Director of Development Nikki Firmin looked after the Bloomhill stall and showcased our many services. Bloomhill nurse Donna also came along and our BLISS service was showcased on the day. BLISS stands for: Bloomhill Lymphoedema Information and Support Service. Lymphoedema is swelling caused by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid within the body’s tissues. It may still not be widely known, but Bloomhill accepts referrals from physiotherapists, occupational therapists, GPs and specialists for L-Dex score reporting. Our bioimpedence technology (L-Dex machine) provides accurate and reliable feedback on the condition of an arm or leg and what steps are required to assist and/or improve the condition. Visiting Bloomhill periodically for an L-Dex score will allow appropriate management strategies to be formulated and implemented.
