Sunday is Father’s Day  - a day to honor Dear Old Dad.

Father’s Day this year happens to fall during Men’s Health Week? The best gift you can give him is good health! Encourage him to look after their own health.

Home Instead Senior Care serving the Southeast Valley is pleased to join The Men’s Health Network and organizations around the country in their mission to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men.

This week, we ask men or those who care for men to:
• Review the Men’s Health Checklist and determine what health screenings they are due for.

• Call to schedule any necessary appointments. Remember, sometimes physicians book far in advance so it helps to plan ahead.

• Start an open dialogue. According to the CDC, Women are 100% more likely to visit the doctor for annual examinations and preventive services than men. This may explain the sad fact that, on average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women. By paying attention to health complaints and possible warning signs, men have a better chance at longer, healthier life.

• Maintain a healthy diet. We’ve all heard about the guy who lived to a hundred and never ate a vegetable in his life. Yeah, well, he’s a myth.

• Thirty minutes of exercise a day helps keep the doctor away. Even if a man is bedridden, there are exercises he can do daily to improve or maintain his overall health. If he’s not bedridden, he can do even more.

For more information on helping men living happier, healthier and longer lives, please call Home Instead Senior Care of the Southeast Valley at 480-827-4343 or Like us on Facebook.
