Men’s Health Month

June marks Men’s Health Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about the health issues impacting men and promoting healthy lifestyle choices. This month is all about encouraging men to take charge of their health and fostering conversations around wellness and prevention.

Fun Facts and Artefacts:

  1. Historical Artefact: The Stethoscope – Invented in 1816 by René Laennec, the stethoscope revolutionized the ability to diagnose and monitor heart and lung conditions. Today, it symbolizes the broader commitment to men’s health and the importance of regular check-ups.
  2. Did You Know? – On average, men live five years less than women. This disparity is often attributed to lifestyle choices and a reluctance to seek medical advice. Men’s Health Month emphasizes the importance of regular doctor visits and preventative care.
  3. Movember Movement – Every November, men grow mustaches to raise awareness for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. This global movement highlights the importance of early detection and the impact of community support.
  4. Fitness Tip – Strength training isn’t just for bodybuilders. It’s crucial for maintaining muscle mass and bone density as men age. Even simple activities like lifting weights or doing resistance exercises can have significant long-term health benefits.
  5. Heart Health – Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among men. Incorporating heart-healthy habits like a balanced diet, regular exercise, and stress management can significantly reduce risk.

Taking Action:

Men’s Health Month is an excellent opportunity to encourage the men in your life to take proactive steps towards better health. Whether it’s scheduling a check-up, starting a new exercise regimen, or simply talking about health issues more openly, every step counts towards a healthier future.

Celebrate Men’s Health Month by spreading awareness and supporting men in leading healthier, longer lives!

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
