Senior Services/Life’s Champions

Life’s Champions was formed in 1985 to serve the needs of senior citizens. At the time, it was a new dimension in providing health information, resources and social activities for seniors. Today members of Life’s Champions, are presented with the latest health topics in the quarterly member newsletter and at the quarterly meetings.  The next Life's Champions quarterly luncheon will be held in the 3rd floor auditorium of our main campus beginning at 10:30 a.m.  Members also enjoy free health screenings at the annual Live4Life Health Fair held on the last Saturday in April.

Life’s Champions enjoy the specially planned social gathering, group travel, and volunteer opportunities offered to members. Upon registration members receive a quarterly newsletter outlining all of the benefits of membership. Opelousas General Health System offers to members discounts throughout the hospital. The program is offered free to local and area residents who have attained the age of 55 years.
