VITALIA Senior Residences® at Westlake is Raising Awareness for Men’s Health Month

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Dawn Spicola

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 the main barrier to men seeking treatment is their fear that it shows weakness or lack of strength.

A couple of simple changes that can be made to create a healthy lifestyle for men’s health would be to raise the awareness that health care is not a non-masculine thing to pursue and repetition of care needs is important.

To improve their overall health and decrease their risk for serious diseases and illnesses men should get yearly physicals and ask questions of their primary care physician.

At VITALIA Senior Residences® at Westlake Westlake, 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.
