Don’t Dismiss Preventive Care

Don’t Dismiss Preventive Care

The current safety precautions set by the governments has helped keep most seniors safe from COVID-19. However, this shouldn’t cause them to lose sight of their overall health. Many providers for senior care in Orange County, California still recommend seniors to come in for preventive care.

Here are some preventive health steps you shouldn’t skip:

  • Immunizations

    Seniors are recommended to get the following:

    • Annual Flu Vaccine
    • Shingles Vaccine
    • Pneumonia (Pneumococcal Disease)
    • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis
  • Screenings

    These are important tests that doctors conduct to check for hidden/ unaddressed medical conditions. Some of these can be done online. However, some procedures require patients to be physically present.

  • Hypertension

    Early detection of high blood pressure can help prevent complex conditions like heart disease, kidney failure, stroke, and others.

  • Cholesterol Check

    This test is essential for early detection and prevention of more complicated health conditions. It can also help seniors determine whether or not they need to take steps to lower their cholesterol levels and avoid unlikely consequences.

  • Diabetes

    This simple blood test can help detect elevated blood sugar levels that can help prevent conditions from progressing into diabetes.
