The reduction of mobility in our hips or the loss of elasticity in our skin is unavoidable consequences of wear and tear! Aging is inevitable and our bodies are not meant to last forever! Yet, those who have taken preventative care of themselves are healthier than their peers, both physically and financially. Preventative care spotlights the preservation of wellbeing and good health as a way of slowing down or avoiding ailments. Instead of attempting to heal sickness, this field of care seeks to prevent it by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices.
Types of preventive care:
- Blood, diabetes, cholesterol tests
- Healthy diet
- Annual check-ups
Seniors who practice preventative care are most likely to dictate the onset of disease early on when treatment works best. Most preventative screenings and immunizations are even covered by Medicare thanks to the Affordable Care Act, as long as you have health coverage!
Preventative care helps seniors save money on long-term and short-term healthcare. By catching a disease early on it is easier to regulate which helps you save money over time. Health insurance also provides incentives for individuals who log in their hours of exercise or who participate in educational health webinars. Remember it is never too late to take action for your health. All it takes is a little effort and determination!
