Arrow Senior Living is Raising Awareness for Men’s Health Month

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Christy Kay, Regional 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. They are less likely to seek treatment because it may make them feel weak or they are embarrassed to admit they are struggling with health problems.

There are some simple changes that can be made to create a healthy lifestyle for men’s health. Getting enough sleep, eliminating risky behaviors, and increasing your water intake are just a few changes that will make a difference.

Men can help to improve their overall health and decrease their risk for serious diseases and illnesses by creating a healthy diet, adding exercise, regular screenings, and an annual physical with their physicians.

At Arrow Senior Living, 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.

Saint Charles, Missouri-based Arrow Senior Living manages a collection of communities that offer varying levels of care including independent living, assisted living, and memory care. Each and every senior living community supports residents by focusing on dignity, respect, and quality of life. The programs and amenities offered are selected to provide only the highest standard of quality and comfort.
