Wellness Wednesday Doctor Day

 

Did you know that next Tuesday is “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day?”  Show a loved one that you care about their health and well-being by attending their next check-up!  Here are some simple ways that you can provide assistance:

Before Their Visit…

  • Help them gather their health history – This includes family history, current and past medical conditions, surgeries, vaccinations, medications, and names of other providers involved in their healthcare.
  • Make a list of questions– Help them write down questions to ask the doctor during the visit.

During Their Visit…

  • Be an advocate – Help your loved review their list of questions. Ask follow-up questions and express concerns when necessary.
  • Take notes – Listen to the doctor and record any important information. Write down the date of any follow-up appointments.

After Their Visit…

  • Discuss the appointment – Review your notes from the visit with your loved one.
  • Offer to help – Ask if your loved one needs assistance with filling prescriptions or getting to follow-up tests and appointments.

By following these simple steps, you can play a meaningful role in the lives of your friends and family members!
