Next week is Men’s Health Week 2021! I wanted to focus on the men in our lives and how a few organizational tools can help them make health and wellness a priority. Read on because we have a special product bundle, just in time for Father’s Day 2021 gift giving!
We have to encourage the men in our lives to organizes their health information. Women tend to be more concerned with their health and in turn, leading a healthy lifestyle, but what about the men in our lives? Here are some stats from the CDC on men’s health in the U.S.
- Over 75% of males in the U.S. aged 55+ have at least one chronic health condition.
- The leading causes of death for men include heart disease, cancer, and accidents (unintentional injuries).
- 51.9% of men age 20+ have hypertension
Give the men in your life the tools to help them manage their health concerns. Writing things down helps commit information to memory so your guy is more likely to comprehend their provider’s instructions! Information is power and that is what the A Plan for Health tools represent – putting the power in their hands to take control!
We have two tools that are especially great for the men in our lives!
The Medical Organizer from A Plan for Health is particularly handy and even pertinent for those with zero health concerns. With chronic conditions, you have time to prepare for your doctor’s visits, whereas with accidents you do not.
What if he does have time to prepare for a doctor’s appointment but you want to help make sure he makes the most of the appointment? Your dad may have to go to healthcare visits alone! Our Healthcare Visits Notebook is a great spot for him to write all his questions or notes.
This Father’s Day, give your guy the gift of health. We coupled our best-selling Medical Organizer with our Health Care Visits mini-planner just for him.
