November is the month across the globe where we shine a light on men’s health. The Movember Foundation has been created to put a humorous twist on a very serious topic by encouraging people to grow a moustache and raise awareness about the health concerns that affect men.
There is a lack of understanding and awareness around health issues that affect men in particular. Research has found that men are 24 per cent less likely to visit a doctor compared to women. Whilst traditionally, men are also more reluctant to discuss their health and they can be less open to share how they are feeling. Home Care Assistance Case Managers are trained to identify emotional, cognitive, or physical support that you or a loved one may require.
November or (Movember) is the month to break down stigmas and focus on encouraging the men in our lives to take action when it comes to their health and well-being. Whether a moustache encourages you to start a conversation about good health or reminds you to talk to your doctor, Movember is a reminder to all men to undergo a complete health check. That means making an appointment with your doctor or specialists and turning up to these appointments. Home Care Assistance Care Workers can help with making appointment bookings, reminders, and if needed, taking you to appointments.
As we age, we can be prone to the emergence of complex health states. However, if we can prevent the onset of health concerns, then we can extend the years of our lives in good health. Common conditions that are faced in our senior years can include hearing loss, diabetes, dementia, neck, knee hip, back pain, and cataracts. Prevention, or appropriately managing these health concerns by being proactive is the key.
Seeing different doctors and specialists can be expensive, so it is important to find out if you qualify for government support schemes such as the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card. This may offer you more affordable health care and perhaps discounts on medications.
Your doctors and specialists may be able to offer appointments online via telehealth if you unable to physically attend your appointments. However, Home Care Assistance can bring the highest standard of aged care to you so that you can receive care in your home. This can include referring you in-home nursing or receiving palliative care at home. This means you can always access the health care services you require, without worrying about how you will get to and from appointments. These personalised care plans aim to promote healthy body, spirit, and mind through home health care.
Home Care Assistance Care Workers provide personalised services and in-home health care management ensuring your health and wellbeing is being looked after. This is always top priority for our team and focusing on supporting you to a healthier and happier lifestyle while being independent and ageing in place.
