This week kicked off Men’s Health Month and is providing heightened awareness of men’s health issues and encouraging men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for illnesses. Featured on the Men’s Health Month website is a statistic stating that women are twice more likely to go to the doctor.
There are many reasons men may not schedule routine exams or may ignore changes in their health. If transportation to your doctor is one of the reasons you are not scheduling or keeping your health appointments, we can help. Caregivers by WholeCare provides transportation services and are happy to help you make it to these important appointments.
As we age there are routine tests that should be conducted, and creating the relationship with your physician is valuable so that they have documentation of your health history, family history and your possible increased risk factors for certain illnesses. Maintaining this relationship with your doctor will also give you peace of mind and comfort to know that you have someone to call when you are not feeling well and have concerns.
We understand the value of your health care team and the importance of getting to health care appointments, and we are here to help you or your loved one. Caregivers by WholeCare is just a phone call away and can answer your questions. Call us today at 615-298-9201.
