Fox Run Senior Living is Raising Awareness for Men’s Health Month

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Angie McClure, 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. 

Barriers to men seeking healthcare treatment include the tendency to downplay symptoms and tolerate pain to stick to masculine norms. In addition, appointment times are not always convenient, making them forgo going to the doctor. Instead, they continue to work to take care of their family financially.

Some simple changes could be made to create a healthy lifestyle for men’s health. Extending open hours and using technology for scheduling appointments is a start to removing barriers for men seeking health treatment resulting in a healthier lifestyle. An online assessment is an alternative to going into a physician’s office. At this point, the physician can tell you the seriousness of the ailment and whether further intervention is necessary.

For men to help improve their overall health and decrease their risk of serious diseases and illnesses, annual visits to a primary care physician are essential. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle such as diet, exercise, and plenty of rest is a great step in disease and illness prevention.

At Fox Run Senior Living Fairborn, 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.
