Carriage Court Senior Living is Raising Awareness for Men’s Health Month

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Becca Fields, Director of Wellness

Men’s Health Month was created in 1992 to raise awareness of the importance of proper screenings, early detection, and obtaining regular medical advice for men and to encourage young men to implement self-care and a healthy lifestyle. Studies show a significant difference between the health of men and the health of women, as men are less likely to seek treatment for preventable diseases. 

I feel there are barriers to men seeking treatment. Some men struggle with the stigma that they are supposed to be tough, strong, and independent.

There are some simple changes in men’s lives that will make a big difference in their health, such as reducing their stress level, getting enough sleep, and eating a healthy diet.

Men can help improve their overall health and decrease their risk for serious diseases and illnesses by getting active. You should aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise or activities each day that will increase your heart rate, boost your water intake, and laugh more.

At Carriage Court Senior Living Hilliard, OH, we take the health and well-being of our male residents, whether in Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care, very seriously.

Healthy lifestyles and self-care for most men start only when needed. Preventative screenings, along with regular checkups while younger, can help lead to a healthier, richer, and more enjoyable life in the later years for men.

Carriage Court Senior Living in Hilliard, Ohio offers assisted living and memory care with a variety of services and a range of floor plan options. Amenities include restaurant dining, concierge service, housekeeping, events and entertainment, personal care, transportation services, and more. Located in a quiet neighborhood just off Main Street and Scioto Darby Road with convenient access to major shopping centers, Heritage Golf Club, and Highway 70 and Highway 270.
