February 21, 2024

Preventative care can help you stay healthier for longer.

Routine preventative care can help you stay well and can catch problems early, helping you live a longer,healthier life. The following are the most common preventative health screenings for adults:

  • Breast, colorectal, cervical and prostate cancers are some of the most common cancers affecting adults,and early detection can stop them from spreading or becoming more serious.
  • Screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes can help detect common metabolic conditions.
  • Immunizations: We usually think of vaccines as something kids need, but adults need to stay on top of their vaccines. Adult immunizations include annual respiratory illness shots and boosters for vaccines like tetanus or the mumps you may have received as a child that have worn off.
  • Counselling: Preventative counselling can help manage a chronic condition or support making healthier lifestyle choices, like quitting smoking.
